and in that same thread, I was looking at a 506PIR 101st A/B website today 
and saw a picture of a paratrooper in bastogne, that looked amazingly like 
the son of a good friend of mine. Imagine my surprise when I read the caption 
and discovered that indeed, it was his grandfather, my good friends Dad. This 
is true, I just discovered this not 15 minutes ago.

My own father jumped at Normandy with the 82nd, and in Holland where he was 
wounded out of the airborne, and fought at Bastogne with the 30th Inf? I have 
to look that part back up. But he was there.

73's and Merry Christmas y'all
