After a cursory Google search, I can't really find an answer, but I have just such a hard time believing this photo was taken on 5-APR-45. I am sure that that is probably the official caption, as it seems like an Army.mil page has this photo captioned as such. But, I can't imagine why Patton and Bradley would've been in Bastgone on that date with the front now so far to the east. Plus, Patton's coat makes me think it's closer to the end of the Bulge than it is April.
