From Alan Henry:
In the picture, I'm the fellow in the middle next to the
little girl. Have no idea of the names
|On 23 February 1945, the 506th PIR returned to Mourmelon,
France, where their chutes
were packed in the second story of a large stone building along a railroad siding. The tables
look white because they were heavily waxed. While he was in Mourmelon, Alan Henry was
given leave and hitchhiked to Eindhoven to see Dutch friends that he had met after the Sep-
tember 1944 jump into Holland.
|T/5 Reese Johnson served in another unit in
and Southern France before being transferred to
the 506th PIR Service Company Rigger Section.
