Cover 1 Sept 1944

His carbine resting within easy grabbing distance, Pfc. Russell Smith of my Monona, Iowa, toys with a light lunch of K rations in his foxhole near La Haye du Puits, better known as Hooey La Pooey, France. The cigar and the battered topper were found by Smith in an abandoned Nazi dugout. The picture was taken by Yank photographer Sgt. Reg Kenny.
