Hello everyone, i picked up a document grouping at the swap meet today. I initially bought it because it had two signatures from General Gavin but I was happy to locate some history of the man it belonged to.
The documents belong to LtCol James H Porter who I learned led the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion In firefighting operations in WW2. The Triple Nickle were all black paratroopers and have a great history.nothing too exciting but it relates to the history of a green to gold Officer with a unique assignment history.
