Sergeant Major Lewis E. Tuttle and Major O’Toole pose with an old woman in the “Arizona Territory.” The photo was originally shot as a joke, since the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, was operating in the area known as the “Arizona Territory” at the same time the Miss Universe contest was being held in Tokyo.
