Long Description:
A Sherman turret is installed on site with a marble plaque, on it can be read :

"The U.S. 10th Armored Division's Combat Command B, the first major
combat unit to defend Bastogne, arrived on the evening of December 18, 1944.
Colonel William L. Roberts deployed his Combat Command in three teams:

• Team Desobry at Noville
• Team Cherry at Neffe and Longvilly
• Team O'Hara at Wardin and Marvie

After delaying the initial German advance, the remnants of these 10th Armored
teams joined the U.S. 101st Airborne Division for the remainder of the siege.
In recognition of their gallant actions, Combat Command B was awarded
the Presidential Unit Citation.
