Yank Archive curator's comments:

I apologize if anyone is disturbed by the graphic nature this photo. The editors of Yank were often quite frank in their depiction of the horrors of war.

No apology necessary.
This was how YANK was published during the war and if anyone is offended by this or other related photos, don't search these journals.
Simple as that.
