    2LT Robert Clayton Hammond, Jr is pictured here as an Officers Candidate School Graduate, aka: "90 day wonder." He is an officer with the newly formed 27th "Horse" Cavalry Regiment of the 2nd Cavalry Division. Many cavalry soldiers traded in their horses for tanks. 2LT Hammond became the Platoon Leader of the First Platoon, Company A, 761st Tank Battalion. S/Sgt Ruben Rivers was his Platoon Sergeant. They both died heroically on November 19, 1944 in the vicinity of Guebling, France.
