we went back to the Ardennes again last month for the "in the footsteps march" this time as 551st PIB .With newly painted helmets and some non airborne equipment we started out with a night patrol on Noirefontaine farm on Friday and a march on Saturday, very cold, sub-zero all day with and added wind chill. It was very easy to see how the soldiers quickly froze, crap boots with no protection from the cold
