    With regards to Bill Mauldin, no doubt.

    Trench press, eh? So put the beans in the helmet, grind with unexploded mortar shell… use socks for filtering (and flavoring)…

    Really nice artwork Dan! And a nice homage to Mauldin.

    Back when the Army still had steel helmets, not Kevlar, in basic training they told us NEVER use your helmet for cooking. It removes the temper from the steel.

    @pschearer: Yes, and the Army sure didn’t want you dying in an untempered helmet.

    Bill Mauldin, one of the greatest WW2 correspondents… Was in front lines with troops in Europe and the pacific… My compatriot.
