A Letter from Mary Saboo
The Picture of Ernie Pyle was taken in Saipan and the weapon was Not his, he was not allowed to carry a weapon as a foreign war correspondent.  One of the guys in my Dad's squad handed him with the weapon.  I also hoped you could make out the inscription at the lower right  corner.  If you can not, of course I know it by heart "To Eddie Shaboo   the  greatest little Jap fighter this Seabee Correspondent ever met."   Mary
