In the movie, Vandervoort tells the two 101st glider troopers: "You are in the 82nd now!" and orders them to carry him around.
Vandervoort never told the story that way, but it basically went down as depicted in the film
We LOVE this painting by a fella named Michael Akkerman called "God of D Day" depicting this scene we just referenced (the two 101st guys carrying Vandy through the city)
We will never forget that
What a story. What a remarkable time. What a group of men. What a Nation we live in to have them.
Thank you all so much.
