A Note From A "Jungle Eater"

The "JUNGLE EATERS" of the 27th LCT were a bunch of young rough and tumble guys,
we were a "get it done" outfit. We were dirty, unshaven, needed haircuts, didn't wear shirts or
socks when we could get away with it. We were "ROME PLOW" operators, we treated our plows as
if they were our girlfriends/wives back home. I think I can talk for the rest of the men of the 27th LCT.
