Tak, Tak, Tak Gavarish Nashe Maximka!
Starshina Pertsev holding container of soil from Stalingrad. The soil was brought back by a member of Gross Deutschland who visited on holiday last year. Members of the 193rd were able to rub some of the sacred soil of the Motherland on our uniforms, Defense of Stalingrad Medals, and Banners. Some recreated the Oath of the Defenders of Stalingrad and ingested a pinch of the soil.
