SKU: 25133

Medic of the U.S. 101st Airborne

On the night of 5 June 1944, 8 jumpers from the 307th Airborne Medical Company parachuted into France. At 1855 hrs, 6 June, C-47s towing gliders took off for Normandy carrying the rest of the medical personnel. The main body landed together in swampy, half-flooded fields and moved north to Blosville where the majority of the unit assembled at about 2400 hours. There a small clearing station was set up and casualties started streaming in. After actions in Normandy and Holland, the news came of a German breakthrough. On 17 Dec. the division moved out. The journey to the Ardennes was far from comfortable, but all were thankful to be going by truck rather than glider.
