Thought I would post some nice scans from Yank Magazine Dec 29 Vol 1 No. 39 1944.

What is surprising is all the names made available in the article. Im not sure if they are all bogus or not.

Enjoy.

Commanding officer

Lots of information in the article about the particular action at Fort Catillon as well as talking about Hill 907 and 960.

That's all folks.

Great shots. Love the pocket full of rifle grenades.

And great captions.

Particularly the tiddy explanation (no doubt penned by a buttoned-down public relations officer) that the "Whiskey bottles now hold water".

Right. Well...its either water... or the locally distilled hooch. But we'll take the officer's word for it.

"Political Correctness of WWII".

The caption doesn't specific what clear liquid the GIN bottle now holds.

You gotta love it.

Thanks for sharing.

I was a little thrown off by all the names in the article. With wartime censorship I would have thought they were made up instead of giving all the operational details this article did. I can post it for anyone who would like to read it.

I know what you mean.I use to have a lot of the Yank magazines and they named a lot of the people in the articles.There is one on the Rangers too.I will have to check but I think Heillman was a Canadian.

Hello! This is a return to an older topic but I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to request prints that were published in Yank Magazine? Would I need to contact the National Archives or what? Thanks in advance for any help!

Old threads often are still good threads. It's been a while, but I seem to remember (maybe in Erie Pyle's) wartime articles where not only were names of soldiers given, but hometowns and street addresses too! I'll have to see if I can find examples when I get home. It all seemed very strange to me.

The early WW2 Army dog tags had NOK (Next of Kin) name and home address on them.I recall this was stopped in 1943 or there abouts due to soldiers who faced capture and the information may be used by the enemy....Maybe its not correct but the early tags did have the information on them.I have a few as well.
