Third batch of photos today. Reg said the pic with the tanks was taken today in Houffalize.

If you look closely on the side of the tank away from Don, you can find the autographs of Babe Heffron and Wild Bill Guarnere.

Don: " Well , that's why you are a trooper , they teach you how to run 3 miles in 2 minutes " LOL

This pic Don shows us where Desobry ( co) was killed at the CP.

There are stories about some troopers who hated Desobry and urinated on his dead body . Some stories are true , some are false . ....

 

More to read about in Marks next book . ...

The autographs are still there partially . I checked .
