ROLLING 2ND ARMORED DIVISION TANK GATHERS NO MOSS—JUST GRAIN

From the November 22nd 1944 Edition of Stars and Stripes.

WITH THE SECOND ARMORED DIVISION—In France, T/4 James C. Shiver, of Brundidge, Ala., and Pvt. Russell Webb, of Deaver, Wyo., camouflaged their medium tank with wheat sheaves and started on the long drive through the Low Countries into Germany.

The other day the tank hit a rest area and for the first time in weeks the men gave their 28-ton baby a bath. When they came to the turret ring they said they found a fine young stand of winter wheat.
