Sir, I'm looking for source information on the "American troops surrounded by German troops receiving D-ration chocolate bars and halazone water-purification tablets inside 105mm shells fired from howitzers, Belmont sector, France, 5 Nov 1944" photo. Is this a public domain photo?

Mr. Marble (comment above): In researching my sources, I remain convinced that this image is the product of the United States Army and as such is squarely in the public domain. The sub-caption headings have been updated to reflect this. Thank you for your interest.
