The men were so surprised to hear Truman use such language that they immediately obeyed.In other action during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, Truman's batteryprovided support for George S. Patton'stank brigade,and fired some of the last shots of the waron November 11, 1918.Battery D did not lose any men while under Truman's command inFrance.The war was a transformative experience by which Truman manifested his leadership qualities and this breakfast was testament to the respect and loyalty of his military comrades.Truman volunteered for active military service during WWII,but was not accepted, partly because of age, and partly because President Franklin D.
