Feb 22, 1945 Had an accident. I came out okay but my guard was sent to the hospital. Been doing all the driving.

The National Archives provided this U.S. Army Signal Corps photo.  Comments on back of photo: “Jeep and soldiers in front of Battalion Command Post located in Buderscheid.  2nd Battalion, 104th Infantry Regiment, 26th Infantry Division.”   And Ben’s photo of the same scene was used for background on his Jan. 29a, 1945 letter.  His photo is with his buddies and shows where the building to the right was hit by shells.  His itinerary says Buderscheid also.  Could this be Ben in the Signal Corps photo?  Probably not.  However, we know he was there.
