"Highly trained, in fine fettle, and anxious to get a crack at the
Germans" is the way the Commanding Officer of a tank destroyer
outfit, now in England, describes his men.
"These boys are ready to live up to their motto of Seek, Find, Destroy," said their Commander. "Their comrades in Africa, Sicily, and Italy have set a high standard for these men to live up to, but I'm more than sure they'll do it."
The men are armed with the effective bazooka, "and these boys think it can't be beaten as a tank buster," their Commander says. They all carry carbines and pistols in addition to their bazookas and "have very high scores on all three weapons—and with their high-powered anti-tank guns, too."
Among the men in this battle-keen outfit is Sergeant Robert D. Klatt, Eau Claire, WI.
