GIs watching a displaced persons camp they liberated.

"On one of my day shifts, I saw a funny thing happen. There was a little stream running through a corner of the camp and the Russian woman would do their wash there. One day, a large woman was doing her wash, when a fist fight broke out between a couple of Russian guys. When she saw them, she walked over, grabbed each one by their shirt fronts and pulled them apart. Then what happened was like a scene from the patty cake routine Bob Hope and Bing Crosby did in the "Road" moves they made later. Both men looked at each other, nodded their heads and each swung a fist, one right-handed and one left-handed, hitting the woman right in the face. She went down like a sack of cement and the two guys went on fighting."
