    Thanks Gwen,,much better for reading.

    Blackbird,,the US 101st and my Battalion, 2nd Btn PPCLI have a close connection from Korea. That is where we got our Presidential Citation when we dropped n and rescued the 101st Airborne trapped on 3 sides by gunfire.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    You certainly couldn't be talkin' about the "Bulge", eh, Jim??? You were still in diapers when the 101st was "kickin' German fanny!!!!" around Bastogne

    Now---you may be reciting some episode that happened below the 38th parallel in the decade of the '50's
