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!
