Six veteran platoon sergeants who have experienced some of the toughest fighting in Italy tell about mistakes that most of our replacements make when they go into combat for the first time.

"The first mistake recruits make under fire" began T/Sgt. Harry R. Moore, rifle platoon sergeant from Fort Worth, Texas, "is that they freeze and bunch up. They drop to the ground and just lie there; won't even fire back. I had one man just lie there while a German came right up and shot him. He still wouldn't fight back."

The other sergeants in attendance were S/Sgt. Manuel S. Gonzales, T/Sgt. Ed Taylor, T/Sgt. William Webber, T/Sgt. James Arnold, T/Sgt. David Haliburton.
