Remember me? I was the tall red head guy in A company 50th sig. I was an 0-5 Bravo ( field radio ) and remember some great times. Where did everyone go? Let me just say that after the Army, I went on to be a police officer with the LAPD and I owe my life ( many times over ) to the fact that I am a paratrooper. When one is fighting for his life, it's good to have those wings and all that they stand for, to draw strength from. Aint no dirt bag gonna take this Paratrooper out! Ahhrrooorrra!!

I was with quite a few other units TDY, but the 11th is the one I am most proud. My CO was CWO John T. Palmer, as fine an officer as ever was, SSGT Ronald McElliot was there also. Years served were from 1971 to 1974. An adventure for sure, I was 17 when I enlisted in the Army (had Mom and Dad sign a waiver), and was only 20 when I got out. It was strange being a Vetran, and not being able to buy beer (legally) till my birthday in September Any E-mail from others is welcome.

Comments: To whom it may concern. I am presently collating and researching information about the 82nd & 101st Airborne Division and their involvement in the landings in Normandy on D-Day 6th June 1944. In particular I would like to hear from any veterans who served in Normandy and wish to share their memories of the D-Day landings. My work will be published in September 2000, by Leo Cooper, Pen & Sword Books Ltd, England, and will be titled 'UTAH BEACH & ST MERE EGLISE' and will form part of their 'BATTLEGROUND EUROPE SERIES WW II'. It is my wish to preserve many first hand accounts of the American Airborne role in the Normandy landings for posterity, and I would greatly appreciate any assistance or contributions in locating and recieving mail from veterans or from their freinds or relatives. Naturally any assistance will be duly acknowledge in my work. If you are able to help please contact me on my e-mail:c-shilleto@ucrysj.ac.uk or write enclosing any information to:....Mr CARL SHILLETO, MILITARY HISTORIAN, C/O 46 ALBION AVENUE, ACOMB, YORK...YO26 5QY...ENGLAND..... As my work will have many illustrations and photographs, I would be pleased to recieve copies of any photographs taken around the time of the D-Day Landings. I would also be interested in any 'then and now' photographs of any Paratroopers. If you wish to see an example of the type of publication it will be. My previous work in this series is titled 'PEGASUS BRIDGE/MERVILLE BATTERY' and documents the British 6th Airborne Division landings....... With thanks and kindest regards to all who read this message ....Carl Shilleto... University College of Ripon & York St John, England.

I was a staff sgt in "M" Co.,3rd Battalion,508 Airborne Regimental Combat Team stationed at Sand Hill, Ft.Benning,Ga. from 1951-1953. The 508 had just been reconstituted and reported directly to the XVIII CORPS. The regiment was involved in an infamous Texas jump called "operation longhorn" in 1953 (?). Infamous because the regimental commander gave the order to jump in winds that exceeded safe levels, resulting n 200 plus serious injuries and 2 deaths . I am searching for a detailed military report on this maneuver; can anyone give me direction? Looking forward to much reminiscing and browsing here.SLIP SIDEWAYS FOR AND EASY PLF!

It has been a long time, my old brothers. You are always in my thoughts and after twelve years I sometimes catch myself remembering all the times Hernandez got drunk on the way up to DC and then Backus and Dilger hog-tied him with his shoe laces and threw him out in the hotel hallway, buck naked. Just one last time let us drink and cuss SFC Angus and SGT Henderson and all those NCO pricks from back in the day and laugh the way we did and dream outloud of the life before us which is now upon us.

He was killed in June of 1951 while serving with the Medical Section of the Heaadquarters Company of the 2nd Battalion, 187th Abn RCT. CPT Stanley Larkins was his commander. I would appreciate anyone who may have known him contacting me.

Comments: I joined the army in 62. I went to jump school at Ft Benning Ga.in 63. Where we jumped 123's jump school was 4 weeks then. I then went to Special Forces Training Group at Fort Bragg. My M.O.S. was Demo&Eng. I was assigned to the 5th Special Forces Group Abn. B Co. A232. The 5th then went PCS to Viet Nam in 64. My team was sent to Plei Djerang in II Corp near Pleiku. All I can say is I was very proud to serve my country as a SPECIAL FORCES AIRBORNE TROOPER. In a difficult time for our country. The men in SF and on my team were the most professional people that I had the privilege to know and to serve with and that has stayed with me throughtout my life. If any of my old team mates, there ranks then in 65, Capt Wands, LT Young, Msgt Tom Kimmer,I know Von Klist is gone,medics Hargraves and Chuck Carrol, commo men Cambell and Dyke, weapons Billy Martin and Ken Yost and my demo sgt.

I got to see him jump onto Sicily DZ at Ft. Bragg when I was a kid when he was assigned to XVIII ABCARTY and, later to SWC. When you jump its just you, but you'll always find a buddy at your side when you land (I learned not to cuss too loudly on a bad landing because that buddy was usually the chaplain).

Comments: Not lucky enough to be one of you guys...but wanted you to know that I shared a little of your past. In the '60s, I was a teenager and in the Civil Air Patrol (CAP). All the Air National Guard C-130s were assigned to Vietnam so the stateside guard bases had C-119s and C-124s. We got to ride on them for CAP functions. On C-119s, we had to wear parachutes because they told us that the C-119s did not fly well on on engine. I wondered how hard it would be to pull the ripcord if we had to jump (we had no practice of course). One of the guys must have felt the same way and he pulled it out "a little." It was funny to see that chute laying out in the cargo bay! The loadmaster put it back in his lap and said that if we have to jump he should "throw hard!" I know that this is not a combat story but just a little from the "home front" side!

I also feel that the airborne unit I served with in Vietnam distinquished itself as it was used as the only fire brigade in the war.Which means General Westmoreland utilized it to meet the hardest combat situations because he knew we'd come through.I also feel the old Rock troops of the 503rd are as proud as we are of the four Army Presidental Unit Citations and one Naval presidental Unit Citation we earned in battle.There never has been nor ever will be a soldier as dedicated to being the best as an American paratrooper !

Comments: Everyone assumes that the 17th Airborne's claim to fame was Operation Varsity, the drop over the Rhine in March of 45. But please don't forget that they fought their way up the Neufchateau-Bastogne Highway from Dec 25 until Jan. 4. On the 4th of January Patton threw the lightly armed Infantry against seasoned troops of the 3rd Panzer grenadiers, the Führer Begleit Brigade, and the 12th SS-Panzerdivision "Hitlerjugend." They lost about 200 men. Then Patton told them to attack again on Jan. 7. Here's the H.Q. daily report: "7 Jan. 45. Objective of the 1st Bn. was the town of Flamizoule, objective of the 2nd Bn. was woods east of Flamizoule. Artillery preparations from 0800-0815. ... The attack jumped off as scheduled with the attacking echelons of the 1st Bn. being immediately subjected to intense mortar and artillery fire. The platoon leader of the attached Tank Platoon advised against the use of his tanks going with the Infantry, and as a result the tanks remained behind the crest of the hill in the north sector Monty, thereby giving little or no assistance to the Bn. The two attacking companies "A" on the right, "B" on the left, were pinned down by well aimed mortar, artillery and SA fire before reaching their 1st phase line." The night of January 6-7 before the attack, the temperature was 18 degrees. At 08:00 a snow squall moved across the shallow valley ten miles west of Bastogne. The 17th fixed bayonets and attacked the towns of Flamizoule and Flammerge where Pkw IVs, Vs, and StuG IIIs caught them in the open in defalade. Nothing less than the blood lust of men maddened by battle drove these Glidertroopers into the two towns. In Flammierge the crazied troopers chased the Germans out of the town and bayoneted not only those who were running away, but Germans trying to surrender also. It was an ugly scene. But a German medic with a white flag who was left behind with nearly 50 wounded, was allowed to surrender his wounded. The Glidermen ate potato soup hot from the German mess truck that was hastily abandoned. The 17th continued on to Houffalese a few days later and helped chase the Germans back across the border. They went defensive along the Our River until Jan. 31 when they stood down back at Mormalon for TO&E refit and traini ng for Operation Varsity in March. Now you know the rest of the story!

He is alive and well, living next door to me. He ask me once if there were a way to find out about his old squad leader, Sgt Raymond Norton. I thought that maybe you could help with that. We also wonder where to find accurate literature about the 187 during the period between the jumps as well as about the jumps themselves. Are there any sources for battle maps and the like. He also served three combat tours in Viet Nam for what it is worth. Any assistance or guidance you may be able to supply would be greatly appreciated!!

I did some jumps with the 3rd of the 325 Air combat team in Vicenza Italy. Our American counterparts were venerable hosts, although their commanding officer stopped the troops from socialising with us as most of them never made it to work the following morning. Again thanks for the Site and I now continue my search for a Brit Para page.

I was a youngster back then, however; the esprit-de-corp and the comradaty the older guys taugh me carried me over the years and sustained me during my tour in Vietnam with the 173d ABN Bde 69/70 English/Uplift. There is no greater feeling then being airborne, forty years from now troopers of today shall feel the same way. Its a great feeling to be forever linked to the greatest fraternal order in the world, Paratrooper of the US Army. I shall be forever proud that I wore the uniform of a paratrooper. Anyone out there remember the mess sargeant from the 307th "E" in the late 50s early 60 SFC Ed Jackson aka Fat Jack, he hated that name. If so give me an airborne.

I went through jump school as Campbell in Jan 1961, which was the next to the last class held at Campbell. I jumped out of all the aircraft you mentioned except the C-82, but then I've jumped out of helicopters and a balloon. The Belgium Army used a balloon at 600 feet for their jumpschool. Nice jump, no engine roars, just peace and quiet where you can really appreciate the sound of a Tap-647 (French parachute) opening. I am a "parachutist" with a bronze star dead center on the risers of my badge. Operation Junction City, 22 Feb 1967, South Viet Nam, 173d Abn Bde (Sep) Let me know if you want a color copy of my jumpschool certificate to add to your excellent list. I was just thinking if I had left high school early, I could have been a paratrooper of the 50's as well.

As a result they have that infectious optimism and that offensive eagerness which comes from physical well - being. They have jumped from the skies and by doing so have conquered fear. Their duty lies in the van of battle: They are proud of their honour and have never failed in any task. They have the highest standards in all things, whether it be skills in battle or smartness in execution of all peacetime duties. They have shown themselves to be as tenacious and determined in defence as they are courageous in attack. They are in fact, men apart. ‘Every man an emperor" Field Marshall The Viscount Montgomery of Alamein.

I will be including many photgraphs and video snippets from my collection of still an dmoving images. I welcome the submission of imagery, from any 09er. Each company will have their own respective space to settle in and work on. So. please, head out to the garage and retrieve those old army memories frm the box in the corner and get it "preserved" for eternity by having it included on the site. It will take some time before the images slowly fill the respective space allocated to all elements of the battalion, but there will be some video up soon, as well as plenty of pictures from 3rd Platoon, Bravo Company, of whom I was a member. In regards to the "Paratroopers Of The 50's," I am must confess that I am very envious at the images that have been collected and preserved during this period in American Airborne History. Yeah...I"m just a wee bit jealous that I wasn't able to take photographs that convey the airborne experience as well as those black and white pictures that are displayed on this web site. Am glad to have "fumbled" my way through the net and to have discovered this site-it will be a role model to refer to, for the one that I wish to create. All The Way, Cameron Commando

Comments: WOW CJ!!!!! It seems that everytime I visit your website, you 've changed a few things and it gets better each time!!! It's great to read stories from so many guys about 'their' experiences in the wind, and on the ground. I've always found it fascinating how 2 or more guys can be in the same battle or situation, yet they each have a completely different perspective of what went on. It's funny what we each see through our own eyes, and what details about particular things we seem to retain thats so different from the others. But this is what keeps the stories alive and real!!! Especially at reunions, or when you read someone's account of something!!! It's these personal stories that bring back your own memories and make you think of things that may have long been forgotten, or remember a buddy or fallen trooper. I was a paratrooper of the 80's, in a completely different part of the world for many years, but the stories read on your website from other troopers do bring back many memories from my time as well!!!

Do you remember when us guys in the 472nd flipped one of our 105's over into that rice paddy full of mud? Capt. Blatt got his tail chewed by Maj. Nash for that one. Seems like yesterday even if it has been fifty plus years. Do you remember how and why the 11th Divisions nik name got changed from Angels to Hells Angels? In the famous the word of Maj. General Joe Swing "My Angels" "Not My Angels" If you were there you will know what I mean! I would love to see a web page put together for the "Kings of Batt le" artillery types in the division.

Could you please help me, or at least find someone that can? He's been listed as missing by his family for 17 years, by me, for 10 years. I never got to know him, ever. I'm desperate. Please help! Thank You!

I found this web site looking up things about my Grandpa who was also a member of the 82nd. His name was Seth Henry Wood. He was in the invasion of Normandy and the invasion of Holland. He was in a Glider unit, Field artillery, 82nd Airborne Division. What unit I do not know, 319th, or 320th or maybe 325th. He recieved the Purple Heart after having his face cushed in a Glider crash in the invasion of Holland. I am just looking for anything related to his unit or possiable someone who was in a Glider unit in one of these invasions. I would just like to know a little more of what my Grandpa went through.

After the 187th made their jump,My team mate and I were sent to meet up with a tank convoy to meet up with the HQ and give Radio/Tel. commucations back to I core HQ. I felt very secure on the road following the tanks until on of the lead jeeps hit a land mine. After getting then radios set up the snow started and the weather was bad, no air support. Thats when the 187th was cut off for several days and we had to be supplied by air drop. On the 5th day the sun come out and the air support and units of the 3rd Div. broke thru. It was good that the two of us were able give the 187th good radio service to HQ.

Wise claims to have not been promoted upon graduation because he hit another student. kKthe story about a "combat jump" is anothe lie, only the 173rd Herd made a combat jump. 5th SFGA made use of the prachute three time and none of them qualified as combat jumps These guys are disgrace to the Airborne, SF, and Ranger community.

Was 4 years at Bragg with CSC 3/325th (abn) Inf. 1975-79 and was one of the 1st people to ever jump with the MC1-1 parachutes My Uncle spent 30 years as a jumper, and I still remember the stories that he would tell me as a child. from the 1st one, I knew that someday I too would someday have some stories to tell. I remember that he always used to tell me "there are old jumpers, and there are bold jumpers, but, there there is no such thing, as an old bold jumper." I would also like to say something to the jumpers of today. You can do ANYTHING even if nature tells you differant, remember it is not natural for man to fly. but I guess we have proven that is not all together true, haven't we.

We got kicked out of the USO in Clarksville cause our black Trooper buddy couldn't stay for the dance. Got kicked off a Greyhound bus cause I wanted a black buddy to sit next to me instead of the back of the bus. But......in those days, we were rough and tough and AIRBORNE, and didn't take crap from anybody. Especially Straightlegs! Would really appreciate it if anyone has a pic of the 5llth patch.

I know for sure that he was paratrooper (I have a picture of him with the glider/parachute patch). He served from 1950-1963, although not all as a paratrooper. I think he was a high-speed radio operator at this time (not sure). He was combat wounded in Korea sometime in '51 or '52 (guessing by accounts from his sister and brother). St. Louis records have been no help. My e-mail address is: JMF564@aol.com Anyone with any information or suggestions please contact me.

He was in the artillery,fought in the Phillipines from 1944 to 1945. Then was stationed up in Sendi Japan form 45 to 48. Rotated to Germany with the 11th in operation gyroscope and was there to 57. Went to Camp Campbell when the Angels were to be disbanded. Was Absorbed by the 101st. and later in 1961 was reassigned to his beloved Hell's angel in Ft. Benning Georgia. As part of the 11th. Air Assult concept test regiment and awarded his third set of wing the Air Assult wings. 1963 the 11th Air Assult was rounded out into the 1st Cavalry. 1965 the 1st Cav. was off to southeast Asia and some of the real old timers like my father from the 11th were off to the jungles once agian. He retired out of the Army in 1968 with 25+ years in the airborne. HE donated one son to the Wall in 1967 from the 101st. Another son servered in country as a LRRP. for the 1st Marine division. A third son was with the 25th ID and yet a forth son with the 173rd Airborne regimental combat team (SEP). Our Family has a very long and proud tradition of being airborne/airassult. My son who is presently in the active Army and stationed up here with the 75th. Ranger Bat. has been accepted for the Q course at Ft. Bragg and should be getting his orders to rotate their shortly. We are very proud of are family and proud of all our brothers and sons who have served with us and before us. We will always encourage our children to go "All the Way"

Comments: Congratulations on being a member of such an elite group of men known as "paratroopers". During Viet Nam I was in college and was never called to serve as I was a good student and followed their rules. The "lottery" came and went and my #'s were always too high and again I did not get drafted. In 1970, I became a teacher/athletic coach in a Ca. High School and I received an exemption automatically. To make a long story short, in 1979 at the age of 31, almost 32, I joined the Army Reserves and served as an MP and instructor at the NCOA for combat arms. My only real regret was in thinking that I was too old to go through "jump school" when I had the chance. Ever since I have wished I could have regressed and made the different decision. I am extremely proud of my time served in the Reserves. Thank you and all of the other "paratroopers" for all that you have done throughout history. I currently am the General Manager for the American Legion Baseball teams at my post and our teams are known as the "screaming eagles" in total respect for "paratroopers" everywhere.

Comments: I was just a little kid living in New York City, when my Mom took me downtown to see a parade. What a parade it was. WW2 was over and we were welcoming home the men who had won it. I was in awe REAL SOLDIERS. It had all been movie soldiers until then. A tank rolled by with its name painted on it... ..."Hitler's Coffin". Thousands must have marched passed, andI was impressed. Here came a group that looked different. They looked a little arrogant...like they were special. "Look at them Ma!" A man standing beside us said, "They're from the 82nd Airborne." Did that mean they were in the Air Corps. Then you began to hear people..."Look...paratroopers"....or "Look at those guys."....Just alot of different ways that people were noticing that these guys were special. You just knew it. That experience will always stay with me. You see, in Jan 53 I turned 17. A couple of my friends and I trekked over to Fordham Roa in the Bronx. All the service branches had their recruiting booths there. Korea was in full swing

Only 68 of our beginning class of 127 completed the school, mainly due to Sgt. Durham who called himself "the devil." Those who did survive were better men than when they started, I guarantee you! I was assigned to Co. B. 188th Airborne Infantry, 11th Airborne Division as a 30-caliber machine gunner. In late November 1955 we were packed into a troop ship in New York and steamed across the stormy North Atlantic toward Bremerhaven. I was stationed at Gablingen, Kaserne near Augsburg, Germany from November 1955 - September 1958. What I am today is due in large part to the fact I was Airborne. It turned me into a man.

Comments: Love to drop in on military web-sites. This one is "GREAT". Drafted in "50"; Served couple tours in Korea, the last with the Okie "Thunderbirds" in 52/53. Went to Jump School when 82nd was running their own in mid-50s. Greatest character- builder was 1st week cut; where 1600 crazy ABN hopefuls competed for slots in class size of 600. Final cut made on Saturday morning when 1000 lined up for final run at 0400 hours and raced up/down, back/forth on Longstreet and Gruber Roads and continued until 600 remained standing. WOW!! As Plt SGT of trainee platoon, had to match push-up for push-up (pack on back) with plt members when they f'd up. What a great bunch of guys; they didn't want me to get cut so they made heroic efforts and endured great ridicule and abuse to make sure that I made it. After that, spent 20 years in the Airborne; 82nd and XVIII Abn (Bragg), 1st SF(Okinawa & Vietnam) 5th SF(Vietnam). Ended up as Master Blaster with 300+ jumps from just about everything that flew. (and 1 or 2 that didn't).GREAT SITE.

Comments: This site is out standing!! With all of the great pictures and stories, I find myself repeatedly coming back to it, so much, that i put a link to it from my home page. The pay for a private then in the 50's is markedly different from now, where a private E-2 makes about $1000 a month, with $150 jump pay, and a clothing allowance of around $200. I went to Jump School in Mar 96, and was in the 20th Eng Bde (Combat)(Airborne) from Apr 96 to June 98, making 17 jumps with my unit until a bad landing fractured my ankle in 3 places. However, I still love the Airborne, and will always be a part of it. Right now, I'm an E-5 stationed in the 84th Eng Bn at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, and can't wait to get back to Bragg!!

Comments: As stated I just kinda found this site. I served in the Army and was in Viet Nam with the 525th Military Intelligence Group in 1966-67. One of the reasons I was curious about this site is because my dad was in an exhibition jump unit during WW II. I didn't have an opportunity to talk to him much about the unit but I know he spent a good deal of time in the South. He mentioned one time about doing a 500 foot stat-line jump over a football stadium for war bonds. The chutes were barely open before they hit the ground. I asked him one time but he couldn't remember his unit designation. If anybody out there knows, I would appreciate having the info so I can research it further. You have an interesting site, thanks.

In the military there is always the competition between the different branches, and different units, and sometimes tension gets real high. But this page and Bill Holt's story really describes what true patriotism and commradre is all about. Sometimes we can get so focused on our units and branches and full of pride about our individual jobs that we forget that it takes an effort from EVERYONE to make any operation happen. It's at those moments that everyone really drops what ever distaste they have for whatever unit, and we all come together as Americans, do our jobs right, and truelly have a bond like no other country!! And Bill Holt's page brings out that pride like no other.....

I was with the 173rd Abn Brig (Sep) when it left Okinawa and went to Vietnam in 1965 where I was twice wounded. The military put me on leg status but with the help of my state congressman and a lot of bitching they dropped my physical disability status and let me back into the harness. Wounds never stopped any airborne trooper from getting on the plane. By the way we were still jumping the T-10 the MC-1 came about in 1967 while I was stationed with the 1st SFG on Okinawa.

Comments: This is a great site, we need more like it. I'm also glad to see that more than just paratroopers are logging on to it because they (non-airborne personnel) get an appreciation of just how big and tight knit the brotherhood is. I had the unfortunate experience of spending the first six years of my career in "non-airborne" units. Since then, I have had the pleasure of leading paratroopers in combat. I took 17 terrific troopers from the (then) 245 PSYOP CO(A), Dallas, Texas to the desert working with 1st MARDIV (TF Shepherd and Grizzly) and 3/5 SFG(A) clearing Kuwait City. From there, 3 more years on "leg status" and then to the JFK Special Warfare Center and School (Airborne) and the U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne).
1500' AGL and under canopy is the only way to get off a bird.

Quartermaster Corps through Western MD College Army ROTC in '88, after attending jump school in class 39-86 at Ft Benning while a cadet. Looks like jump school was a lot tougher in the 40's and 50's than when I went through in the polite 80's. God Bless you and the fighting men who made our country the finest on the earth. Thank you for your sacrafices and let us pray that certain spoiled baby boomers don't destroy our bill of rights, the freedoms for which you and I stand, and our nations' reputation. Airborne!!!

Comments: A competent presentation of archival-quality military materials. Without such sites, the 1950s would fade from our collective national consciousness. It is up to all of us to remember, and to remind the young, that freedom is won on the battlefield, not on the campus (the last great hope of communism), not demonstrating in the streets (the permanently immature flower children of the ‘60s), not promoting some one-world alien political/economic philosophy (the politicians and others who are sending our jobs and wealth out of the country). Serving with the 11th Airborne, 1951-1953, gave me experience and the GI Bill, two assets that served me well over a rewarding lifetime of work as a conservative educator who influenced untold thousands of young people--I retired one year ago, professor emeritus. Not bad for a kid from the slums.
