In this and dozens of other, similar pictures made at New York’s Penn Station — pictures that could not fail to resonate with a public for whom the war was, in a sense, the only reality — LIFE’s Alfred Eisenstaedt captured a private moment repeated in public millions of times over the course of the war: a guy, a girl, a goodbye, and no assurance that he’ll make it back. By war’s end, more than 400,000 American troops had been killed.
