Vol. 1 No. 25 ……. American Flyers Describe Life in a Nazi Prison ……. Cover: A QM Commando goes to work on the Army’s most prosaic weapon, a Singer sewing machine. It isn’t a glamorous job and, even if this Commando gets his hand caught in the needle, the odds are against his getting a Purple Heart medal, but it’s a job and he’s doing it well. He repairs the wear and tear that longshoremen, railroaders, truckers and other Persian Gulf Command GIs wreak on their khakis, ODs and fatigues. If all the rest of us do our jobs as well as this needlework Napoleon, we’ll be on these ships bound for Staten Island and points west a lot sooner than we expect.
