Battle of the Bulge - 87th and 101st
#4

Adding this comment here for my friend Bill on the Hill, from the 87th Infantry Division:

 

"It was good to see the item entitled "87th and 101st" that Marion sent to Jim Hennessey. I was happy to see John McAuliffe's added comment. He pointed out that when Don Burgett said that the 87th Division was a green Division new to combat when it engaged in the Battle of the Bulge that this was in error. The 87th had a lot of casualties in the Saar Region of France and Germany before going to the Bulge. I had planned to say this, but John beat me to it.

"Don Burgett has written four books, and all of them are excellent. In 'Seven Roads to Hell' he said that one time, I believe near Foy, that he looked up and saw a soldier wearing a Golden Acorn patch. He was pleased to see that another Division had entered the conflict."

Marion, have a good one, and keep up the excellent work.
