I was in the ASTP (Army Specialized Training Corps)at the Univ. of Ark.Most of us from there ended up at Camp Maxey, Texas in the 99th Inf Division and the Battle of the Bulge, the Remagen bridge,the Ruhr Pocket and all that good stuff.
Stephen Ambrose wrote a book "Citizen Soldiers" about the ASTP and Interviews with many former ASTPers.
I still have two of the "flaming pot" patches. Also a "ruptured duck".
