The official USMC caption for this photo dates the briefing, as well as the raid, as Aug 10, 1945 but this is incorrect. The actual mission logs for both the bomber squadron (VMB-611) and the fighter squadron (VMF-115) say the raid occurred on Aug 9, 1945

Famous WW2 Quote
"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
