I lost a lot of weight while in Iraq and have managed to keep it off since returning. As a result, few of my clothes fit. For Christmas I got a basic load of pants from my wife in various colors — along with a Perry the Paltypus T-shirt for hanging around the house. Chris Palmer, however, gave me a German infantry company conducting a river crossing.
The boats are Pendraken. Chris cut the legs off German vehicle riders and glued them into the rubber boats. He did a really nice job with the bases. He has a twin company, so after Lvov we’ll start planning a France ’40 or Russia ’41 river crossing scenario.
