Information about the 505th PIR 82nd Abn
#1

Perhaps this is not the right section but I couldn't find one which sounds better to me. Feel free to move.

 

A friend of me is looking for more information about the 505 PIR from the 82nd Airborne division. He knows a lot about their fights and dropzones but is there anybody who can provide more information about stories and/ or pictures from troopers? I found some pictures and stories her:

But is there someone else who can help us?
