Sgt james F. O'Laughlin's company, C Company, would have jumped and landed in Market Garden on Sept 17. George Jackson's platoon in B Company came in with the gliders on Sept 18. However, they might have known each other. I still need to have this chat with George.
In addition, Frank Gubbels recently visited Bastogne to take photos and send them to me, in hopes that we can get confirmation of the location where George was during the battle. I'm working on sending that to him via mail.
