Colonel Ed Shames
|Enlisting in September 1942, Ed Shames was to become one of the most respected officers in the 101st Airborne Division, a stickler for detail he always got the job done, and brought his men home. Originally assigned to I Company in the 3rd Battalion of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment he was then transferred to Headquarters Company. He received a battlefield commission during the taking of Carentan in Normandy, and joined Easy Company in July 1944 as a 2nd Lieutenant prior to Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge.|
Corporal Herb Jr Suerth
|18 year old Herb Suerth enlisted as a volunteer for the Reserve Engineer Corps on 11th November 1942, but after a change of heart in 1944 he was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division, beginning parachute school training in August that year. After final combat training in Holland, Herb was trucked into Bastogne in December 1944 during the Battle of the Bulge, also fighting in Foy. On 9th January 1945 Herb was wounded by artillery fire and his legs were severely injured but ultimately saved. He was shipped out of England and back to the US on 8th April 1945.|
Sergeant Amos Buck Taylor
|Having worked in a factory making Sherman Tanks, Buck aided the war effort even further by becoming a Paratrooper and enlisted in July 1942 before being assigned to 3rd Platoon upon his arrival at Toccoa. When jumping into Europe on D-Day he was 2nd Squad Leader but having scattered on the jump, it was not until several days later that he joined up with the rest of the company, just prior to the attack on Carentan during which he was made 3rd Platoon Sergeant. At the Battle of the Bulge, when advancing from Bastogne to Foy, Buck was badly injured when shot in the leg which saw the end of his war spending 11months in hospital.|
Sergeant Paul Rogers
|Aged 24, Paul Rogers volunteered to be a Paratrooper in 1942 and soon found himself at Toccoa training under Colonel Sink. When jumping into Europe on D-Day, Paul lost most of his equipment, including his rifle, and his parachute snagged on trees from which he had to cut himself loose; he later found out he had landed eight miles from the intended drop zone. With the 3rd Battalion he fought throughout Normandy but was injured when jumping into Holland as part of Operation Market Garden and subsequently spent four weeks in hospital. Upon rejoining the platoon he stayed with them all the way through to Hitlerís Eagles Nest in Berchtesgaden.|
