The main body of the troops arrived piecemeal as the roads would allow. All was made ready to commemorate the Battle of the Bulge. Upon completion of duties the men were allowed
and evening pass to visit the various clubs in the area. Three are of note: the Occupied French CafÃ© (papers required to get in), the Go Devils Den for enlisted personnel, and the Drunken
Monkey run by the Navy.
Thursday, January 26th
Training was commenced for the troops preparation to go into battle against German garrison in the area. Command personnel from the 4 platoons attached to K co. went out on recon to
check out the terrain in our area of operations. A primary action area was found to be quite swampy with several small creeks flowing through it. There was to be a pass and review for the
veterans attending the weekend. Due to inclement weather moving in, this event was canceled after B co. was formed up to take part. The men were allowed to frequent the clubs again and
visit the ever-present flea market. A mess hall service was established and the troops enjoyed a full menu of well-prepared hot food for the next few days.
