Teamwork is essential. It gives the enemy someone else to shoot at.

No15.JPG (17158 bytes) Rex McElroy isn't short, he's next! That's what the sign says on the antlers. He who was "Next" got to wear the special attire and was hauled around the area on a mule bidding farewell to his friends because he was going home! Otto.JPG (18576 bytes) In the mail hut is Merle Otto.  Hands on hips is Carl Herrmann.  On the left is Michael Germany

No9.JPG (25918 bytes) Again, am guessing that it's Tim Greenly talking on the radio. No2.JPG (19767 bytes) Captain Griffiths gives some last minute advice to a team ready to go. On the mule, closest to camera are Gary Mascitelli and A.J. Simon.
