Content: Caption on back: "The 343rd ASF Band, pretty girls and a Welcome Home Boat greet the last members of the 93rd Infantry Division who returned home from the Pacific on February 1. Leader of the Port's popular 343rd Band is Warrant Officer (J.G.) Fred D. Griffin who formerly headed the 93rd's band. The 343rd played with added enthusiasm for their Leader's old outfit, and the Pacific veterans who crowded the rails of their incoming transport enjoyed it. 2/7/46."
