LT. COL. JOHN E. COLEMAN,
MAJ. BERTRAM H. WHITE,
SELF-PROPELLED M-12s are in the thick of theassault on the Siegfried Line. This month's cover showsa battery of them lined up almost track-to-track, firinginto the German town of Bildchen, three milessouthwest of Aachen.THIS PAST MONTH, like those that have gone before, brought your Association a tremendous number of address changes. Even so, undoubtedly many amember was just too busy to notify us that he hadmoved. Remember, we make promptly
stencilchanges that are requested—but we must have your cooperation too. If your JOURNAL is missing or your friends aren't receiving theirs, send us the proper currentaddress; the chances are that earlier cards went astray.Please bear in mind too that magazines are
forwarded from temporary APOs (those with four or five figures). Just keep us posted of any change in your address, however small, and we'll keep your JOURNALS properly flowing toward you.WHILE ON THE SUBJECT of mail and theJOURNAL, we are glad to report the fine receptiongiven (1) the overseas "pony" edition and (2) the newfacilities for sending it by first-class mail. An extra $1 per year is all that is required for your JOURNAL toreach you overseas more promptly than ever before.Wish we could send all of them that way without extracharge, but it just can't be done.ENEMY MORTARS are a very "live" subject in alltheaters. Consequently next month's article
, by Lt. Col. Robert C. Gildart, FA,should be especially useful.M-7 units will be interested in a detailed descriptionof a simple support for the camouflage net, which ismore flexible and effective than most others and whichaffords more working space for the cannoneers.Also in the works are overseas articles on topicsranging from headquarters units to the heavies.And all Air OP people will study carefully Lt. Col.Gordon I. Wolf's remarks about the
