Red Ball Express (March 20, 2012) - Pete Torres
While your dio of the Red Ball is excellant, some of the facts are wrong. First, the Red Ball was formed to keep up with the swift advance of Patton's 3rd Army thru France. Second, it was formed up with the black troops that were being used to unload the supply ships coming into the Mulberry docks set up by the allies, since almost all the white troops were involved in the actual fighting. And lastly, only jeeps or half-tracks were used as lead to guide the convoys of trucks up to the front.

Peter Torres should have stopped after his first sentence. Your diorama is excellent, Scott - you should be really proud. I'd have been tempted to fit another vehicle in there - another 6 tonner or maybe a halftrack by pushing the jeep further forward - but it's difficult to tell whether that would have worked. Keep up the good work! You're an inspiration to us all.
