101st Airborne, 502 Parachute Infantry Regimen, C-Company jumped into France behind German lines to begin the liberation of Europe. One of the best men I have ever known was one of those guys. Spent the nite with 82nd Airborne guys because of serious misdrops. He and C-Company were 10 miles from where they were supposed to be. Told me that the were Germans all over the place. Somehow they made it to Saint Maire Eglise. Must have been an awful, frightening experience. BTW, I married his daughter.
