After my time in the Marines, I joined the Army and was assigned to 1st Battalion 327th PIR of the 101st Airborne Division. The unit is famous for it's decisive roles in World War II in France especially for it's defense of the city of Bastogne. The unit earned it's nickname there - "Bastogne Bulldogs"
