Battalion Aid – This is a story about the men who take care of the front-line fighting men. But it is also a story of non-combatants on the front line — how they also need care very often, and what happens when they do. It is, simply, a story of one Battalion Aid — it might be any Battalion Aid-that knows its job and does it well. By Sgt. Mack Morriss

Opening of Antwerp – There was a time, when the port of Antwerp was a battle area, that people wondered if ships would ever come in there again. Now that the harbor is working, here is the story of a strange mixture of Americans, British, Canadians and Belgians who, fighting Germans and repairing docks at the same time, were part of one of this war’s little-known battles. By Sgt. Bill Davidson
