August 23, 1944 – Wednesday

SONY DSCWe moved the first thing this morning. We were to go pick up some pull type trailers and on the way we stopped to get some beer. The town was off limits so the M.P.’s picked us up and took us to the stockade. They took our names and turned us loose. The beer was good but we didn’t know the town was off limits. Went back to the company. We had to take the culverts we had on the trailers up to the front. The infantry was dug in all along the canal. We dumped the culverts off and came back. We were going to move up but the French are taking over this section and we are going to another.
