ON OUR COVER appears the latest use of the105-mm howitzer. Mounted in the M-4("Sherman") tank, it combines the mobility of anM-7 motor carriage with full armor protection. Itgives this medium tank its heaviest firepower todate.
 
LINED UP for next month is one of your
 Journal's
most important articles of the year: Maj.L. O. Rostenberg's detailed description of how tolocate and identify enemy artillery from analysis of shell craters. Also scheduled is a group of articleson observation and fire direction for the "heavies" — of special value to those units, but of use andinterest to every artilleryman.
 
Artillery is now being reinforced by tank destroyers, 4.2
chemical mortars, and even bytank guns. This topic will be covered by severalofficers who are well versed on what is being done,and how.
 
And Capt. Pike (see p. 702 herein) will haveanother article, this one on use of oddments forpractical field fortification.
 
FOR THE FUTURE we are arranging fordetailed combat accounts, complete with namesand numbers, places, movements,accomplishments — the "What and how," so tospeak. Battle lessons can readily be drawn fromsuch narratives, but those stories will make goodreading in themselves just as soon ascircumstances permit them to be published. Insome instances that will not be until after the war.In the meantime, however, we want YOUR tale of YOUR operations.
 
MORAL OF ALL THIS is that yourAssociation is a continuing organization. It hasbeen for over a third of a century, and will carryon long after this war is past.
 
It is also a
mutual
association. You membersown it and run it. Your interest is its strength.Your cooperation through the years has built it up.Your contribution of articles has been outstanding.
 
This too will continue long after this war ispast. And remember, even when many of youreturn to civilian life you still remain eligible forAssociation membership, for your
 Journal
, and forthe other benefits of your Association.
