OUTGOING MAIL (47 K)

Outgoing Mail ...

   A 3-inch gun has seemingly been unmounted from a damaged tank destroyer and made into a makeshift artillery emplacement somewhere in Normandy, 1944. Outgoing mail was GI parlance for artillery aimed at the enemy; incoming mail was the term for enemy artillery inbound for U.S. positions. U.S. Signal Corps photo, from the collection of combat photographer T/Sgt. Nelson A. Shuey.
