The attack was successful in that the enemy drew his reserves away from the main effort in order to meet the push of this point.
However, the cost of the attacks was high, and out of approximately men who participated, 65 were casualties. Nineteen were killed and eighteen were missing. On January 17, , the battalion was relieved from First U. The battalion had been in the line for 31 days. During the period of combat at Malmedy and Stavelot, casualties were: 33 killed, 58 wounded, and 24 missing. The orders were to hold Malmedy and Stavelot at all costs. The two towns were held and the enemy did not gain use of the road nets offered by them.

The desert training center was a simulated theater of operations that included portions of California and Arizona. Camp Bouse was the home of the 9th tank group which consisted of six tank battalions, one armored infantry battalion, an ordnance company and a station hospital.
The group trained in absolute secrecy mainly at night. The light device consisted of a high powered search light, mounted in an armored housing on a tank. Its purpose was to temporarily blind the enemy at night. The role of the th infantry was to defend the operations of the CD tanks and attack if security of the tanks was being threatened. The remainder of the battalion was heavily involved during the Battle of the Bulge, fighting the enemy in the Belgian towns of Trois-Ponts, Stavelot, Malmedy, Hedomont, Bougnee, and Geromont.
The purpose of "T" Force missions were to seize, safeguard and process enemy documents, archives and material of intelligence or counter-intelligence and capture enemy agents, military officers and key collaborators.
January 18th, ". The th Battleaxe was the only Armored Infantry Battalion to get overseas. In Stavelot there is a memorial to the th Armored Infantry Battalion! Its 1ST Battalion Lt. Ernest Frankland , under orders to occupy Stavelot, circled through Francorchamps to approach the town from the north. Although without artillery support, Colonel Frankland launched his attack at Stavelot.
On the slope north of the town a platoon of 3-inch towed tank destroyers from the RD Tank Destroyer Battalion made good use of positions above the Germans to knock out a brace of Mark VI tanks and a few half-tracks.
The two leading companies of the 1st Battalion had just reached the houses at the northern edge of the town when ten hostile tanks, returning in haste from Trois Ponts, counterattacked. Perhaps the trail provided by the rearward serials of Kampfgruppe Peiper led the fighter-bombers to Stavelot; perhaps the TH Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron, which broke through the clouds to make one sweep over the town, tipped off the squadrons working farther west.
Before the German tanks could make headway, planes from the th Fighter Group, reinforced by the TH Squadron TH and the 50TH Squadron TH , plunged in, crippled a few enemy vehicles, and drove the balance to cover, leaving the infantry and tank destroyers to carry out the cleanup inside Stavelot on more equitable terms.

We knew nothing of the terrain, there were no lines of communication, we had no idea what troops were in the area, nor what this disposition was — we moved into a complete vacuum with no time to evaluate the situation nor time to develop a plan of resistance.

Parts of the Battlefield Detectives in which we see several veterans and myself plus others giving their opinion on the BoB. Bronze Star. It was based on the idea of Colonel Russell P. He had launched the thought that it was good for moral of the military if there was a decoration that could be awarded by Captains of a Company or Battery to the personnel who served under their command. At first the decoration was to be instituted with the U. Navy to be given to ground and surface personnel for heroic or meritorious deeds.
For not known reasons the institution did not occur. The idea was picked up by General George C. Marshall who wrote a memorandum to President Franklin D. The president installed the medal the very next day. The decoration could be awarded to any military who, serving within or together with the army of the United States after 6th December , decorating himself by heroric or meritorious deeds during the acting as military, not participating in air operations, during military operations against an armed enemy or during an armed conflict in which the United States was not participating as belligerent.
The decoration could be awarded for the described heroic actions, not sufficient to be awarded the Silver Star of for meritorious actions or meritorious acting of service which did not qualify for the Legion of Merit.
In the possibilities for awarding were enlarged. The Bronze Star can also be obtained by veterans or next of kin. Military that took part in the struggle on the Philippines between 7th December and 10th May could receive the medal when the action took place on Luzon, the Bataan peninsula or the Harbour Defences on Corregidor Island and were entitled to the Philippine Presidential Unit Citation. Military who had received the Purple Heart during the early days of the Second World War specifically for merit and not for wounds could in some occasions also exchange the Purple Heart to the Bronze Star.
The rule that any soldier that fought together with the American Army, the decoration could also be awarded to foreign military. The decorations measures 1,5 inch 38 mm over all. All radials in the centre of both stars continue in one each other. The medal hangs on the ribbon with a square loop with rounded corners.
At every fifth award, the bronze and golden were replaced by a a silver oak leaf cluster or silver star. The action it was to be awarded for had to be of significant value.

Avenue Joseph Lejeune Roll of Honor - st Infantry regiment - Ardennes Campaign. Momuments honoring the Americans in the Salm Valley! Well, thank you very much.
And I want to wish all of you a good morning. It's a little damp out here this morning, I recognize. But I'm honored to be invited to join in your ceremony, and want to welcome all of you to the nation's capital, as well as to this very special place, our National World War II Memorial.
I count it a privilege to stand in the presence of men who were sent into battle by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and who, by your courage and your honor and your devotion to duty, helped win a war and change the course of history. To the soldiers, widows, and family members here today, I bring personal regards from President George W.
More than six decades ago, after training in the heat of the Arizona desert, members of the unit ended up fighting in the intense cold of the Ardennes. As very young men, you experienced the hardest aspects of war -- ferocious combat and the loss of comrades. There must be times when you think back on it all and wonder how you made it through.
Some of the recollections, also, must be a little tough to dwell on. Yet I hope you'll carry with you always the memory of the nations you helped liberate, the images of the people you freed, and the feeling of accomplishment that is uniquely yours, for you served honorably in a desperate hour for our country. And in the pivotal hours of the Second World War, the th Armored Infantry Battalion was a valiant unit and earned a permanent and respected place in the story of liberty.
One of the great strengths of this country is the unselfish courage of the citizen who steps forward, puts on the uniform, and stands ready to go directly in the face of danger. It is that quality, more than any other, which has kept us free for more than years. Yet Americans are a peaceful people. And so, as this very memorial testifies, we number the casualties of war not as a statistic of history, but as an enduring, irreplaceable loss to our country.
For some of the men in the th, there was to be no homecoming. These men, last seen on duty so long ago, are still loved and remembered. How wonderful it is, how American it is, that more than 60 years after the end of the war, you should be here today, honoring their service and speaking their names.
Your group has gathered over the decades, and you have brought into your circle of friendship family members of different generations. Your ranks have naturally grown smaller with time, but the spirit of these reunions never changes.
You are patriots and loyal friends. You are a credit to the uniform you once wore, and an inspiration to the young Americans who wear that uniform today. Many years ago you proved yourselves to be selfless men. Today, at this place of reflection, I hope you will permit yourselves a moment of pride. Be proud of the way you have lived your lives. Be proud that you were good soldiers, faithful and true, when the nation needed you most.
Thank you very much. END A. You served honorably in a desperate era for our country. One of the great strengths of this country is the unselfish courage of the citizen who steps forward, puts on the uniform, and stands ready to go directly into the face of danger," said the Vice President during his remarks.
The ceremony was in honor of the th Armored Infantry Battalion which is the sole remaining, separate armored infantry battalion from World War II, whose soldiers defended the Belgian villages of Stavelot and Malmedy on December 16, , the first day of the Battle of the Bulge.

The machines had fought their way to within twenty yards of his position on the top of the heather clad hill in the midst of a dark December night in the Lakes of Cumberland and not a single one had been seen. The cloak of invisibility had hidden the tanks from the gunners and the great British leader was sure that the army had a war winning weapon.
The generals and other cabinet members in his entourage were likewise persuaded that the demonstration they had just seen was the start of something big, something that would help defeat the German foe. It was to involve the expenditure of millions of pounds and the occupation of some of the most technically minded and highly trained tank crews in the war time army. Almost total paranoia was achieved in the preservation of the secrecy of the device.
It would also play a role in the life of war time Pembrokeshire. In the decision was made to change the 86th Wing from a composite wing to a wing devoted to intra-theater airlift, and the 86th Wing began to assume the airlift mission previously held by C Hercules aircraft at the th Airlift Wing at Rhein Main Air Base , Germany, which was slated for inactivation. With the influx of C personnel, the th FS was inactivated on 1 October , with its aircraft and personnel also being moved to Aviano AB , Italy, being assigned to the th and th Fighter Squadrons.

I remember an article a few years back in Stereophile where they interviewed some record producer at his house. They were astounded that his home speakers were Khorns and spent half the article trying to convince him that he needed "audiophile" speakers but he wasn't buying their line, very funny.
What is so remarkable about this letter is that the author is a musician who has spent a good deal of time in high end showrooms around the country looking for the "ultimate" system. He first heard the Khorns from a driveway and thought he was hearing a live band. He was amazed to find that what he was hearing was a pair of "big old speakers" driven by a 30 year old receiver. He asked Stereophile he's been a reader for a year " What, kind sirs, is a Klipschorn and why was it the very best stereo system Ive ever heard?
However, to Stereophile's credit they recently reviewed Dynaco 70 tube amps very favorably. But always felt I had made a big mistake. I've been a subscriber to Stereophile since, uh, sometime back in the early 80's. When I started reading it, most of the reviews were written by Tony Cordesman, J. Gordon Holt or Dick Olsher. Whether the measurement, in any way shape or form, has anything whatsoever to do with ANY aspect of the way equipment sounds is determined empirically - that is, rather than trying to come up with a theory that says "this measurement reflects the capability of the CD player under review to produce a grainless extended high frequency because of blah blah blah This has led some folks to criticize them as a bunch of tech heads who care more about specs than about sound.
I don't feel that way. An excellent example of how some useful info can come out of this is the apparent relationship between the off axis frequency response radiation pattern of a speaker and that speaker's imaging capability.
They didn't start out by saying "We think an off axis pattern that shows tightly grouped contour lines with no significant flares or depressions, whose horizontal radiation pattern decays smoothly, will result in a more stable stereo image. Geez, it's the only audio rag I can afford!!! So let's cut'em a little slack, eh?
Shoot, the Industry Update, record reviews, and the interviews with music and audio folk alone justify the price. And once in a while they do review something I'm interested in -- and can afford! Stereophile reviewers hate coloration and most classic Klipsh have it.
The newer RF RF-5 and up line is much less colored. I find much of their technical information very interesting, but way beyond me, of course now they are so cheap, that it is hard not to subscribe,. This message has been edited by Colin on at AM. I wait for the day the Klipsch Heritage and Adcom are takin for serious review. I get a bit hacked off at Stereophile but as it was said the letters, music reviews and industry update is worth the price. They have also been very kind to Parasound in the past as well as KEF.
A lot of times, the companies wont send products. As for Klipsch, they just have not been that great in recent years Sorry; I'm stressed, flying in commercial aircraft again, brain dead, I got 4 kids, 2 dogs, oldest kid just went to college in September; second just got braces, wife is still torqued over my new Sherwood Newcastle power amp I didn't ask permission for I did but she did not see it that way and my mutual funds are taking a pounding!
Over the years Stereophile has indeed created what "is the largest body of credible audio information available anywhere. Then, in a move of deft lawyerly skill, Stereophile combines that mountain of hard evidence with subjective views from professional witnesses.
I am not on your panel of regular jurors, for I only purchase the odd issue every now and then. I do however, applaud the masterful effort. Since the pile of audio magazines grows smaller every year, I offer five suggestions, for I would be sorry not to see such an eminent advocate before the audiophile bar. I don't think that your magazine, as lean as it has become, stretches the public understanding of your objective measures.
Come on. How do you expect your average, off-the-street, jury member to keep up with your testimony when you obfuscate with language as obtuse as that? Maybe Stereophile should sell a play book so I can keep up with the sophisticated moves in this high court.
