Monument pays tribute to role of engineer battalion in WWII Rhine crossing
#1

I saw this today in Stars and Stripes. It is a new memorial to the 249th Engineer Battalion for erecting a pontoon bridge of the Rhine for Gen Patton's 3rd Army to cross. It was dedicated with great fanfare. I'm glad to see that.
