Thomas Started Early
And Now A Story Compliments of Mr. Thomas
Battle of the Bulge
by Peter Thomas
Our Provost Marshall was Colonel Tom Lancer- The Best Officer I have ever known. We did our Job-followed orders when we were dropped off alone in a recently held enemy territory, in snow, rain, and mud for hours; we had been shot at by snipers, shelled at crossroads by 88’s, strafed by enemy planes, we took German Soldiers back and guarded our Military Installations.
Our Contribution could never compare to the front line infantryman, but we were vital and necessary, and yes we did help win the war. “No Mission to Difficult …No Sacrifice Too Great Duty first”. in closing, I submit this Article about the MP’s from Stars and Stripes Magazine published just after D-Day I am Proud to have been part of the 1st Division MP Platoon.
