  1. My compliments to Jerry Morelock on the article about the 106th Division in the Battle of the Bulge. My dad was a Sergeant in Company C of the 424th Regiment of the 106th (one of the former ASTP personnel mentioned in the article). His recollections and my research since he passed away confirmed many of your conclusions. His company was called up to Winterspelt when the German offensive began. I visited the area in 2010 with some good maps and found lots of artillery craters and foxholes. Dad was blessed to come home. Thanks for a great article!

  2. Just a note to congratulate you on a superb publication. I came across ACG on a news stand last year and soon became a subscriber. As a former State Department security policy analyst, it soon became apparent to me that your contributors and writers are extremely well-informed, and the high quality editing and makeup of the magazine make it a pleasure to read (and re-read)!
    Thanks to your entire staff for making a significant and professional contribution to the national security debate. Keep up the great work; I look forward eagerly to each issue. Sincerely, W. Craig Davidson, Foreign Service officer (ret.), U.S. Army 1966-69.
