Went to Visit a Friend Yesterday....

Recommended Posts

Went to visit a friend for D-Day yesterday. Yes, I'm dirty, my daughter and I went when I got off work. See that little string sitting on the table? When he was floating to the ground on his first jump in Sicily (in extremely high winds), a German gun rang out in the distance...next thing you know, he has a parachute cord dangling in his face. He cut it off as a souvenir. He and his wife got married after D-Day before Operation Market Garden. She is a British war bride, and they celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary in August. I am honored to know them. He was HQ/2/505, and made all 4 jumps.


Always interested in purchasing items pertaining to the 505 Parachute Infantry Regiment in WWII (82nd Airborne Div.). Please send me a PM if you have something.
