In every army, in every war there are always some individuals who are on the lookout for ways to enrich themselves by one way...or another. The U.S. Army was no exception! Some soldiers helped themselves to wine, women and song...Others looted valuable jewelry, paintings, ornaments, silverware – virtually anything they could lay their mitts on. A few had even bigger ambitions...they went after gold bullion! Four GI’s have an appointment with a bank manager somewhere behind German lines and intend to make a rather large withdrawal...
Eisenhower wearing IKE - D-DAY IKE - General Dwight D. Eisenhower
Here, the General is seen wearing the short, battledress-dress style jacket (modelled on the original British one) that he had specially tailored for himself in London when he took up his European command in 1943. In this version his “IKE” jacket, as it came to be known, is tailored in the same chocolate brown material as the regular U.S. Army officers’ issue uniform of the period. When this colour of jacket was worn it was usually teamed with the “pink”( more beige khaki actually) trousers of the standard officers’ uniform. - See more at: http://www.kingandcountry.com/eisenhower-wearing-p-10149.html#sthash.5Fz7fWD9.dpuf
