My Great Grandmother and Great Uncle - Circa 1944

My Great Uncle Harold was a paratrooper in World War II. He was a sergeant and squad leader in the 82nd Airborne Division and had 13 battle jumps. Harold was awarded a Purple Heart. He fought in the Normandy Invasion and The Battle of the Bulge. Incidentally, Uncle Harold's great-great-grandfather was from Spain, and a member of Napoleon's Grand Army. Fly the American Flag with pride!

Remembering my great uncle on Veterans Day (who fought in the Normandy Invasion and The Battle of the Bulge) as well as all who have so bravely served this country. Fly the American Flag with pride!
