This must have been taken while C Company was on a rest somewhere in Germany. The second man from the right on the bottom row has a rifle and a grenade hanging on his shirt. The man on the left with a pipe is Tech Sergeant Henry J Marchant. The man behind him with a pipe is SSgt Leslie H.Phillips. The man at the far right (Bottom) is Tech Sergeant Woodrow W. Maxwell. The others in the group, including the Medic from the 114th Medical Detachment are unknown to anyone I have talked to. I tried to identify them at the 101st reunion in Gettyburg in 2005, with no luck at all.
