SGT Stan Parker was assigned to Tiger Force as a PIO photographer from Division. He had been in another infantry unit, and had been wounded twice. Because of being wounded, he had the choice of any job in the rear. His 1st Sergeant insisted that there would be trouble if he stayed out in the field and got wounded again, so finally prevailed and sent Stan to the rear. When Stan was at division PIO, he was asked what he wanted to do, and he promptly said, "Send me to Tiger Force!"
