  • "The memory of starved, dazed men," Winters wrote, "who dropped 
    their eyes and heads when we looked at them through the chain-link
    fence, in the same manner that a beaten mistreated dog would cringe,
    leaves feelings that cannot be described and will never be forgotten.
    The impact of seeing those people behind that fence left me saying,
    only to myself, 'Now I know why I'm here!'"

I keep thinking that before this image was taken he and Burgin were talking and Burgin said something along the lines of “I didn’t want to tell you this in front of the others, but that dress makes you look like a girl” to which Sledge would inquire: “Am I a pretty girl?”

Two American soldiers proudly show off their personalized “Easter Eggs”, northeast France, during Easter of 1945.

Always bring this around again ready for Easter.

  • Babe, strong as an ox, shuffling toward me as he carried and pushed both men’s luggage. He gave me a wink and a smile as I walked up to them only to have Bill blow past me on his crutches at a speed faster than any man on two legs could move. A blur of a blue shirt, hat, and bolo tie. “Hiya, kid!” he said as he shot past me and was gone.

    Babe shook his head and looked at me with his scene-it-all eyes. “That’s Wild Bill, Frank. Needs to have a cigarette and flirt with the girls!”

    When we did catch up to him we found Bill propped against the wall, hat on a jaunty angle, an unfiltered Pall Mall on his lips, winking at the passing ladies—throwing out “Hiya ssshhweetheart!” in a voice like Bogart’s. I took a moment to admire these men—full of energy and fire that would have crushed most men. Still he oozed paratrooper guts and swagger. My God, what he must have been like at eighteen!

I hardly know how to write this letter, Faye. Your loss has been so great that there is very little I can say that would in any way console you. He was my best friend and the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do was go on fighting after “the Skipper” was gone. I’ve seen a lot of them go, and I’d never seen men cry ‘til that day when Skip joined the angels.
