US weapons in WWII


There is a picture of Ernie Pyle in Wikipedia captioned "Pyle shares a cigarette with soldiers on Okinawa". They are all carrying M-1 carbines. I thought infantry all carried the M-1 Garand. Artillerymen, drivers, radio guys carried the carbine. What are these guys? Here is a larger picture. There is a guy on a horse. The uniforms differ, one guy is wearing puttees.
