    Those fly boys, are giving the krauts a real pounding, go get'em boys.

    UNIFORM OF THE DAY:

    Our GIs are equipped with M1 Steel Pot, the
    Semi-Auto M1 Garand Rifle 30.06 Caliber, OD
    Wool Shirt and Pants, M1923 Cartridge Belt
    that held 80 round of ammo in stripper clips
    for the M1, I don't see any Bandoliers on them, GI Entrenching Tool (Shovel) and back packs.

    GI JOE: CITIZEN SOLDIER

    During a battle with the loss of Officers and Senior NCOs, it sometimes comes down to one man taking charge, it could be a low ranking NCO, Corporal or Private to continue and accomplish the mission.
    In the US Army GIs are trained to take charge if necessary. This type of contingency
    plan works out fairly well during battle. GIs were allowed more autonomy on their part
    GIs are still not shy about expressing his opinion about something, Americans regard their right to gripe as almost sacred, but ending their gripe with the word Sir to an Officer.
    An Officer once asked me what I thought about something, I told him, I think its full of S--t Sir!, but were gonna stir the
    S--t to get the job done...
