Col. C. W. Richmond (center), commander of the U.S. Army Transportation Corps' "Red Ball Express," examines a road map at the Red Ball headquarters at Alenoon, France. The other officers are members of the Military Personnel Center, and they're present to work out logistical problems involving the numbers of trucks and experienced drivers needed to work the many Red Ball routes stretching from Omaha Beach to the front lines.
