How-some-ever ... my Dad, Raleigh "Buddy" Power (graduated jump school in 1947), served most of his 24-year career as 82nd Airborne and Special Forces (77th Special Forces in 1955 -- before the beret; then again from 1964). I've sent him your site address -- I'm sure it will bring back fond memories -- like sandpapering the brown boots so they were smooth, then dyeing them black; or sanding down his jump wings so they were smooth and shiney like a mirror. Airborne all the way!! We run every day!! Guy Power

It's like First Sergeant Rutland of Alphatraz said so long ago... "You ain't in that Hollywood Scout Platoon anymore, you are in Alphatraz, prisoner for life, no parole." He was right. Let's Go!

Units/Dates +Comments:    Enlisted in 58 right out of high school with friends that wanted to go airborne. So we listed for 4 years with the 505th/82nd and gyro to Mainz Ge. in Jan.59. The guy who suggested we go airborne wasn't able to make it so he stayed behind in the 503. Three of the original San Antonio boys made it. Myself, Charles Fernandez JR., and Joe Soto. We were all in the same co. since we join under the buddy system. after that I went home early and assigned to the 325 in late 1960. I decided I wanted to change jobs so I went to air condtion school after reenlisting. because of the Berlin & Cuban crisis i was reassigned to the 504th which had returned from mainz. after that i went to alaska to finish my tour and got out. Like to hear from anyone that remembers me. I was also a long distance runner with the mainz troopers. Who remembers what STRAC stands for. For the young trooper who don't know.

Campbell (11th Airborne Div) from 1950 thru 1953, I made the scene at Camp Desert Rock, you know the atomic bomb thing and also the Ft. Drum deal. The Army fried us at the Nevada Test Site and we froze at Ft. Drum. I'm the webmaster for the Atomic Veteran Web Site, you can get the lowdown at: http://www.angelfire.com/tx/atomicveteran/index.html In the fall of 1951,I was in Co. "A" of the 188th A.I.R., down on Indiana Ave and 13th St. After we returned from Ft. Drum I transfered to HQ Co. of the 188th. There were lots of deaths and injuries in that "Operation Snowfall" deal at Ft. Drum. I received my wings at Benning in about April of 1950. Good luck to everyone and I hope everything is going the way ya'll like it. Happy New Year to you. A fellow trooper -- John DeBusk

But the first jump was made by MSgt Ralph Bottriel, not "Sky High" Irvin. MSgt Bottriel was my great-grandfather and according to the citation to accompany his Distinguished Flying Cross, he actually performed the first freefall parachute jump. If you are interested in a copy of this citation, I would be happy to provide it.

Most of all I really miss the night jumps, after I finally woke up and exited the plane it was very peaceful, in a strange way. We once had a guy who claimed to have trained with the Green Berets (although we soon learned he had not) on his first jump with us (night jump) the jump master had asked whats that smell, (he had releived himself - #2) no one answered, most of us were sleep as usual, when we were told to "stand up" he threw up, anyway he still jumped, (with the stick pushers help) the pilot missed the drop zone and he landed in a tree (broke a leg) most of us slipped away, I was leaving for Germany and didnt have to make that jump but I insisted. Thats the jump I remember most my last with my friends. All the way.

I made my count to three thousand checked my chute to find a line over the top. i pulled the handle of the reseve without putting my left hand where it was supposed to be, the chute sprung out and dropped straight down in front of me, instead of putting the handle under the harness I threw it. when I landed one of the dz noncom ran over and said give me twenty pushups for dropping your handle! I told him i didn't drop the dam thing! I threw it, he took one look at me and said tell your instructer I said you were a good trooper. On the 1st glider ride we all got in the glider took our seats, the instructer handed me a carbine bayonet, when i ask ed what it was for he said do you see the painted lines on the roof? he said if this thing starts going down befor it,s suppose to you cut an opening so we can get out! the only chutes we had on were reserves!

Fellow instructors remembered: M/Sgt Clark, SFC Deaton, SFC Johnson(2), S/Sgt Bobby Whiteman, Sgt Clark, Cpl Miller, Pfc Taylor, Pfc Cook. Jumped 'T-7's' from C-46, C-47, C-82, C-119's until 'T-10's' were introduced; jumped 'Normandy DZ', Ft. Bragg from C-124's; selected for Indochina MAG Team, but mission cancelled when China threatened to intervene. Remember when tornado hit Ft. Benning to take-down one of the 250 ft towers, scrambled the aircraft lined-up on Lee Field, & damaged barracks & married quarters before tearing a path through Sand Hill(a tornado went through Columbus the year before). Remember standing at attention along the road from the Lee Field to the Main Base when Pres. Eisenhower arrived to visit his son, Maj Eisenhower. Also remember when martial law was declared to place Phoenix City off-limits after Alabama's Asst Dist Atty was murdered. Believe fabled "Ma Beechie's" was closed forever following this act & no more forays across the 14th St Bridge to 'Sin Alley'! Good times......

I am trying to find anyone that may have known him, his name was William Jesse Gary, Jr. he may have gone by the nickname of Buddy, because he was named after his father. He made it through the Battle of the Bulge and was killed in action on March 24, 1945 during the jump over the Rhine River during Operation Varsity. All that is known is that he enlisted on July 30, 1941 and his military whereabouts are unknown except for his last unit. I would appreciate your correspondence. Thank you.

My time in the military was the most rewarding times of my life. Reading about outfits like the 173rd Airborne and their actions in Vietnam makes me wish I would of gone there, or at least as a rigger. Thanks for the web site and the memories. Andy P.

Billeted at Warner Kaserne, Munich, Germany. Does anyone know someone who served with the 503 in Germany? Of those of us who are still around, I guess nearly all of us are collecting Social Security.
I always thought that the most beautiful Airborne Patch was that of the 11th Airborne Division. Like the 82nd it is Red, white and blue, but mostly blue and there is no mistaking the silver wings supporting the 11 in the red circle. That's GOT to be Airborne!

Went to OCS as an SSG on the SFC promotion list and retired as an SF officer (Major) in 1993. Oh, those C-119's (4 jumps in Abn School and then 3 more with the Italian Abn). IMNSHO, the C-130 is the best jump platform that ever flew. The 1985 Basic Abn Course (BAC) certificate brought back memories as I was the Tower Branch Chief at that time. Took command of HHC 1-507th PIR when we gained Regimental affiliation. Would be glad to tell you why the Abn Tng Bn became the 507th and not the 501st if you'd like to contact me. One of my most treasured memories is my copy of Devlin's "Paratrooper" with the inside cover autographed by the surviving members of the original Abn Test Platoon in 1986--including Bill Ryder and "Red" King--when we held a reunion down at the jump sheds at Lawson Field.

I jumped C-123s at Benning in 1962 and 124s at Bragg in 62 or 63. This is a very interesting site. It brings back lots of memories, and clears up some fading (and sometimes in-error ones). Time marches on. We cannot stay young of body forever, but the mind doesn't always know that.

Location:    Mesa, Arizona

Units/Dates +Comments:    I went into the Army in January of 1958, but didn't get my wings until summer of 1962. I was lucky, however, in that I got to jump from a C-46 (flown by the Air Comandos, a C-119 (flown by some Air Guard unit) and C-124s (in Jump School at Benning). Most of the other craft I exited from were of later vintage, but the older planes were exciting, because I recognized at the time that I was jumping the last of them, especially the 46 and 119.

La Hermandad de la "Seda" no distingue credo, raza o color, lo que los distingue es el honor de los caballeros del aire las generaciones Airborne y el valor, lealtad y sacrificio.

...Cuando vallan mal las cosas,
como a veces suelen ir,
cuando ofrezca tu camino solo cuestas que subir,
cuando ya el dolor te agobie y no puedas mas seguir,
descansar acaso debes,
pero nunca desistir,
desistir es de cobardes,
eso nunca quiero ser,
quiero ser un buen infante,
y servir a mi país,
y con orgullo decir,
desde el cielo mar o tierra a cumplir con la misión...

Con Respeto y en Memoria de todos Paracaidistas caídos...

Editors note: thanks to my Paratrooper Friend Gilbert Leal we have this translation:
"the brotherhood of the silk does not distinguish between creed, race or color. What they do distinguish is the honor of the gentlemen of the air, and the generations of Airborne and their valor, loyalty and sacrifice."
The rest is a poem that primarily states and simply put... when the going gets tough, don't give.. take a break, but persevere and complete your mission.

McGuire proudly, and with distinction, served with the 11th, 187th Reg in Korea. He never spoke of his experiences, and I assummed the tragedy of war was just too horrible and painful to remember. Dad passed several years ago, but he was wearing his Blood Wings, his 11th Airborne lapel pin, regimental necktie and of course, his jump boots.
I attended several reunions of his AAOC 7 group, and his fellow officers always took a moment to make sure I knew what a fine officer he was. He was awarded many medals, but the only ones he cherished were his CIB and Jump Wings. The only way you'd have known he was airborne was the Rakansas bumper sticker he displayed.
Thank you again for your wonderful website.

I am pround that I was able to follow in the foot steps of the Best Darn Fighting men in the world The American Paratrooper. I also have a question for Phil Arledge. Where and when did the unit that he was with get tagged with the name Moatengator? I designed a dragon with wings running on his hind legs to be used as flag for our unit when we particapted particapated in "Desert Strike" in the Mojave Desert in the summer of 1964. We were the only unit from the 82d that went. An NCO named Gaweda , who later became the CSM of the 18th Corp and Ft. Bragg labled our unit and the dragon "Moatengators" I have photos of the original hand painted sign that hung in our mess hall. I find this fascinating. I hope that Gaweda didn't steal the name from another unit that he was in. I would like to talk about this. Thanks Dann Sears
