Thanks Joe, for posting the cartoon. I have three books of Mauldin's WWII

cartoons, but this one is my favorite. It's a side of War you don't hear much about. The rations were nourishing, but they were cold, relatively tasteless and worst of all, monotonous, as I'm sure you remember. (Day after day, week after week and month after month). And to drink, we had a canteen of luke warm (body temperature) water!

 

And try to refill your canteen from a 5 gallone can of water with a 3 or 4 inch diameter spout!

 

Bill Mauldin had a good understanding of the infantryman's lot and his cartoons struck home then and still do!
