Lonesome Soldier Needed: 1943

Description with the photo:

Washington, D.C. Girl sitting alone in the Sea Grill, a bar and restaurant, waiting for a pickup. "I come in here pretty often, sometimes alone, mostly with another girl, we drink beer, and talk, and of course we keep our eyes open--you'd be surprised at how often nice, lonesome soldiers ask Sue, the waitress, to introduce them to us".
