Caption: "WIRED FOR SOUND: It takes hundreds of miles of wire to set up efficient communications systems for outfit, and wiremen must operate under all sorts of hazards to provide vital telephone service. Master Sgt. Bernard Caplan, above left, directs one of his wire teams while skies are free of enemy aircraft. The 955th comprises nucleus of Brooklynites augmented by West Coast Reservists."
