SSD,

Went on a staff ride to the Lorraine in France. We studied our unit’s (2nd
Cavalry) history and their involvement in the battle.

This is the local French monument to the Battle of Arracourt. The Battle of
Arracourt was a major clash between U.S. and German armored forces near the
town of Arracourt, Lorraine, France, between 18–29 September 1944, during
World War II. As part of a counteroffensive against recent U.S. advances in
France, the German 5th Panzer Army had as its objective the recapture of
Lunéville and the elimination of the U.S. XII Corps bridgehead over the
Moselle River. At the end of the battle, we had lost 25 tanks and 7 tank
destroyers versus German losses of 200 tanks and assault guns (86 destroyed;
114 damaged). It also gave a turbo thrust to the career of then LTC
Creighton Abrams who commanded CCA and was the primary ground tactical
commander for us at the time.

The cool part of the memorial was they found the hulk in a scrape yard in
France in the early 80s. The town paid for the moving and refurbishing of
the tank so they could put it on display in the center of town.

Very respectfully,
SFC MW
