US ARMY IN ACTION: IN THE MUD While stationed in W. Germany 1960s train in the mud, train in the snow it was cold, wet and just miserable. The barracks were old, and to keep warm, had to keep that old pot belly stove fed with coal looked like it had been there since the Kaisers army and Hitler's army trained there. After a day in the field, you took vehicle to the wash area and cleaned them up, and cleaned any other tools and weapons used. In Vietnam didn't have the luxury of clean vehicles units I served with took vehicles with them to Vietnam, and kept them running those 2 1/2 and 5 tons trucks were open cab and bed modified to carry machine guns, sand bags and welded steel plate. It was very interesting to see the South Vietnamese Army on the road in new trucks, while the GI's made due. I thank the editor/ww2db for allowing me to leave this comment
