    It's not secret plans for the Normandy invasion, or Patton's memoirs.. Plain and simple menu for probably the mess hall dated 09/17/46 and 09/18/46.. This uniform belong to a cook im sure. I think I'll frame it next to the uniform. A piece of unsung hero history if you will. This division was created in 1942 and disbanded on November 1st 1946..
    So in conclusion, guess what they had for dinner at Ft. McClellan on November 17th 1946..

    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie
