General Patton

Sir, I have read accounts from other forums, when posting this item, that convoys of GI's

would ride around with one shouder patch on. Then switch jackets on the return leg wearing another

one. True, who knows... but what a cushy detail.


If true, I wonder how many senators’ kids ended up on that working party. :zelda: <----- I normally don't use those but I thought it was appropriate - too bad there wasn't an ostrich putting his head in the sand. The lengths some go to do avoid dangerous duties. . . I'm sure there weren't many looking to get into the combat engineers to avoid danger (perhaps the ball-turret-gunner equivalent of the ground side!) "Here son, take this bayonet and poke the ground for wooden land mines. Be sure not to start until I'm over in my foxhole."
