I Company In Review
General Eisenhower and other dignitaries review the troops in 1945.  Major Alton Bell is seen to the left of Ike.

"Jim, Dusty and Don"
Jim Allen (Hq 1st) and 2 buddies whose names are uncertain although Dusty's surname may be Malone..  Even the location is unknown but Jim is flashing the "V" for Victory sign and Don is holding what appears to be a white stein so we are assuming the photo was taken in Germany.  Anybody know who Dusty and Don really are?

"Helen Wheels"
George Ritchotte in his Jeep named after his wife, Helen.  Probably taken in Frankfurt

Another Company H Group
somewhere in Germany. Words on wall translate to "We Still Have ;;;" but we cannot see the rest of it.   Whatever it was they had, they don't have it anymore.
