Sgt Bernhard Alvestad of Gig Harbor, WA joined the US Army and was a Light Mortar Crewman with FSSF 4-3. He joined the First Special Service Force at their inception in 1942 and fought with the unit in every major battle until its disbandment in Dec 1944. He was wounded in action with the Black Devils in the battles for Rome, Anzio, and a third undisclosed location.

Sgt Alvestad was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, and Purple Heart with three Oak Clusters. His actions earning him the Silver Star took place near Castillon, France on 11 Sept 1944. Pinned down by four enemy pillboxes at the head of his platoon he charged them single-handedly with his sub-machine gun while a hail of small arms fire struck all around him. With his magazine empty he got right up to one pillbox and killed all inside with a well placed grenade. Forced to retreat under overpowering fire he got back to his platoon to reorganize for repeated assaults on the fortified positions. He remained at the head of his platoon "continually inspiring, encouraging, and urging his men on to the attack." After the disbandment of the FSSF he was transferred to I Company of the 506th PIR where his hip was shattered by machine fire while fighting in Southern France in 1945. He would be medically discharged nine months later and returned to Gig Harbor where he worked as a commercial fisherman and never spoke about his war time experiences or accolades. "By his gallantry and fearless spirit in the face of enemy fire, Sgt Alvestad reflects honor upon himself and the United States Army" - Maj Gen David G. Barr, Chief of Staff

At this point I just want any excuse I can get to wear my HBT shorts in a photoshoot without being farb, there are actually a few pics of Heer troops in shorts in Europe but it's quite rare.

Переправа через реку Миус на авто нашей экспедиции. Мост остался здесь ещё со времён 1943 года. Crossing the river Mius on the car of our expedition. The bridge has remained here since 1943.

USS Brooklyn CL-40 anchored off Portsmouth , NH in May 1939. During this time she was part of the Squalus SS-192 salvage fleet. -The Brooklyn 
was a Brooklyn class light cruiser which were known for the ugly appearance they presented from aft. Reason being they were designed with a hanger in the stern directly under the quarter deck. This allowed for storage of 8 aircraft.

1940, Gillet Herstal 720 AF | Belgium 🇧🇪
Gillet 720 AF was outfitted with a twin-cylinder, in-line, 2-stroke, vertical-type engine, and since plant engineers had acquired enough experience in designing 2-stroke engines by that time, they chose this type of the powertrain. Engine capacity was 728 cc and engine power was 22 h.p. at 4000 rpm. A 4-speed gearbox with additional reverse gear was installed on this motorcycle. The rear wheel was driven by a chain-and-sprocket drive, and a torque shaft located inside the rear tune of the sidecar frame went from the rear-wheel center boss to the sidecar wheel.
