I have been in contact with two vets from the 194th GIR who participated in Operation Varsity. They were in different gliders, but both remembered that the glider pilots took photos of the group shortly before take off.

Has anyone seen these photos from Varsity? Also, which Troop Carrier Group(s) were involved in transporting the glider riders for Varsity? And finally, has anyone seen photos of the paratroopers just prior to loading? Thanks in advance!!!

Well, I found a partial answer to one of my questions, the OOB for the IX Troop Carrier Command can be found here: http://www.publicenq...ands/tc9th.html

Now to research the different groups.

these are either scans from the Life issue or other books including the instant classic SKYMEN

the one that is Ided as 194th GIR is pretty cool,the dude on the right is wearing what apears to be an overlord reinforced jumpsuit beneath his 43 jacket
