“The morning was uneventful, except for a visit from Gen. Bruce (77th Div) and Rear Adm. Kiland who is taking him to his objective. Bruce, as usual, is rarin' to go and is looking well ahead for action. I much prefer a bird dog that you have to whistle in to one that you have to urge out. He is of the former variety.”--Lt. Gen. Simon Bolivar Buckner
