Mr. Hansen,

I do photography as a side hobby of mine outside of work and had a few opportunities to bring my camera to some training since I’ve been at 2-327 as of September. Below is a link to the Google Drive folder that I curate with processed full resolution photos if you would like to use some for your website. “Graverobbers” probably has the most interesting shots for you until I can get out to shoot some more training.

I was blessed to meet this old man last January and volunteered to be his Guardian on an Honor Flight to all the Memorials in D.C last Saturday.
He was a charter member of the 101 when they formed up in 42. Jumped on D day.

Bataan Death March

This past weekend (3.18.17), a group of veterans from No Slack and myself participated in the Bataan Death March. It was held at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

We were honored to see Terry and Elisabeth Burgess, a gold star family from No Slack, whose son was Bryan Burgess.

I just wanted to share.

And as always, NFS!

Dear Sir,

I am writing you for information about my dad. I don’t have much from him, but what I do have is a picture. I have attached it. If there is any way that you can lead me in the right direction, I’d love to learn more about him.

The guy in front is my dad. He passed away my senior year of high school, in 1996. The only thing that I received was a box full of pictures, etc. from the time he was in the Vietnam war.

Can you help Heather with information on her father?

I had the honor and privilege of placing the 327th wreath (paid for by the 327th Regimental Unit of the 101st Abn Div Assn) at the 101st Airborne Division Monument at Arlington on Veteran’s Day 2016. The Capitol Chapter hosted and conducted the placing of the wreaths ceremony.
