Report Of Commanding Officer:

In the "Battle of the Bulge", the enemy temporarily cut the main supply route from Trains to the combat elements of the division. It was during this time that the Germans threw small arms, mortar, and artillery fire into the company bivouac area at Samree, Belgium After being under fire for five and one half hours, this unit was finally forced to evacuate, and did so without loss of a single vehicle. As the convoy moved out down the road, the road was shelled; when it reached Dochamps, about one and a half miles from Samree, a mortor barrage was laid on the town, causing one casualty from this company.
