"So tell me, Corporal," is the caption under this cartoon. Two pipe-smoking French officers sit on their luggage and discuss a heavy question. "It'll be nice to be in bivouac tonight....I'm afraid the bedding is a little damp....perhaps you would make it better if you warmed the beds with sugar....what do you thinK?" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/17/95)
