By posting this notice that appeared in a 1944 issue of YANK, we had hoped to play a useful roll by bringing to an end some of the bar room arguments and late-night dorm bickerings that came about as a result of the unlikely story line that was presented in the movie, Saving Private Ryan (Paramount Pictures, 1998).

Some will be interested to learn that, yes, the U.S. Army did have a repatriation policy regarding "sole surviving sons", but it did not encourage the sacrifice of rifle platoons to that end. The attached article will explain the policy clearly.
