Lt. Robert A. Peters, antitank officer, 3rd Battalion, 117th Infantry Regiment, has graciously given his permission to share with all 30th researchers his letters of correspondence with me. Capt. William Druckenmiller, who knew Lt. Peters since states-side, remembers him as performing on the 'edge' of orders but aggressive and fearless.
Ubach date was October 4-5, 1944.

During the battle of the bulge there were times and places where the snow was a bit deep for the 3/4 tons pulling the guns. Someone thought the problem could be solved with a full track vehicle. I don't remember what it was called (in addition to the many uncomplimentary names). It was about the size of a jeep. The vehicle had the bad habit of frequently slipping one of the tracks. It could be put back on with some effort, but its use was a far from popular solution and I believe lasted only for a few weeks before we returned to using the 3/4 ton trucks.

It wasn't a T24 "Weasel" was it?
