A Company C. vet told me that the 'Charlie' was reduced to about 70 men after a month in combat (morning reports show a low of around 117). Replacements like Harry Proudian could not fill the ranks quickly enough, and then were often lost. The town of Portbail had been a pretty little seacoast town before many of its walls wee cracked by our bombers. The civilians, who had suffered a lot of sorrow, heaped gifts of cheese, milk and butter on the liberators of the 90th. The 357th was pulled from the line for a short rest on June 30, their first break in three weeks of combat, and actually tasted some hot chow.
