Angoville with the famous church where two medics treated about 80 wounded soldiers and one kid. Blood stains are still on the benches of the church, but out of respect I felt I had to refrain from taking a picture of that. 506 PIR had their HQ here for part of the battle. see last pic in this series. Actually, this was their second location; before it was situated at Culloville. #ww2 #ww2history #D -Day #normandy #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #506thparachuteinfantryregiment #506thpir
Some pictures of our recce at Bloody Gulch. With my guide Christophe, we talked to local farmers, walked through fields, climbed fences and navigated to some hedgerows. Excellent stuff! #ww2 #ww2history #normandy #battleofnormandy #carentan #bloodygulch #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #506thparachuteinfantryregiment #506thpir #501stparachuteinfantryregiment #501stpir #1944

Remembering Lt Henry S. "Hank" Jones on the anniversary of his passing in 1947. Hank had wanted to follow his father into a military career since he was young. He entered West Point Military Academy in 1941, earning the rank of 1st Sergeant during his 1st year. After graduating on June 6, 1944, he went on to Infantry training at Fort Benning, Georgia, and soon transferred to the paratrooper school. He earned his jump wings and was sent to the 13th Airborne Division at Camp Mackall, NC. He was assigned to a glider unit and also earned his glider wings. In Dec, 44, Hank and 15 other officers were sent overseas to Europe. Hank was assigned to the 506th PIR as a 2nd Lt in Feb, 45, as the unit was deployed to Haguenau. He was placed in Easy Company's 2nd platoon and took part in the patrol across the river Moder on the night of 13-14 Feb. By all accounts he performed well on the patrol, leading one of the squads. Within a week he was promoted to 1st Lt and transferred to regimental staff. He remained with the unit for several months, reaching Berchtesgaden with them. In Sep, 45, he requested a transfer to the 508th PIR. He remained with that unit for a year as the Assistant Regimental S-3. He then moved to the 907th CIC Detachment in Aug, 1946, and was assigned to the Berlin region where he was appointed as a field office commander. Hank was involved in a car accident in 1947. He recovered well except for a minor difficulty. He underwent surgery at the 279th General Hosp in Berlin with the view to returning home to the U.S once recovered. But the surgery was not successful and Hank died in the hospital on the evening of July 21st, 1947, aged just 23 years. He was remembered by the men he served with as a friendly, kind, witty, and intelligent personality. Hank was portrayed by Colin Hanks in the episode The Last Patrol Currahee and rest easy, Lt β™ β™  #bandofbrothers #easycompany #henryjones #colinhanks #ww2 #wwii #506thpir #parachuteinfantry #101stairbornedivision #paratrooper

Doc Roe treats Alley after he was wounded by a grenade blast while on patrol in Holland. And he seems to have got himself a nurse Liebgott 😊 Band of Brothers episode "Crossroads" β™ β™  #bandofbrothers #easycompany #506thpir #parachuteinfantry #paratrooper #101stairbornedivision #screamingeagles #ww2 #wwii #ww2miniseries #ww2movie #onset #docroe #eugeneroe #shanetaylor #medic #moealley #joeliebgott
The route from Mourmelon to Bastogne passed through Suippes. At this (still operational) military base the US 82nd Airborne Division was stationed. They trucked into The Ardennes in front of the 101st and would see very heavy action near La Gleize, Trois Ponts, Bras and many more places on the North Shoulder of The Bulge. So, more than enough reason to do a small detour to get this picture ro honor these heros! #ww2 #ww2history #1944 #battleofthebulge #ardennesoffensive #bastogne #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #101stairbornedivisionairassault @101staasltdiv #82ndairborne #82ndairbornedivision @82ndairbornediv @bastognewarmuseum #bastognewarmuseum #bastognebarracks #bastogne @liberationroute @europeremembers
Took almost three hours, but I made it to Bastogne driving the route from Mourmelon the 101st Airborne Division took in December 1944 as close as possible. #ww2 #ww2history #1944 #battleofthebulge #ardennesoffensive #bastogne #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #101stairbornedivisionairassault @101staasltdiv @bastognewarmuseum #bastognewarmuseum #bastognebarracks #bastogne @liberationroute @europeremembers
A big hello from Mourmelon Le Grand! Starting my drive to Bastogne from here; as much as possible in the historic route driven by 101st Airborne Division on 18 December 1944 to rush to Bastogne and help stop the German attack in The Ardennes. #ww2 #ww2history #1944 #battleofthebulge #ardennesoffensive #bastogne #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #101stairbornedivisionairassault @101staasltdiv @bastognewarmuseum #bastognewarmuseum #bastognebarracks #bastogne @liberationroute @europeremembers

James H. "Moe" Alley (seen on the right with Don Malarkey at Camp Toccoa, Georgia, 1942) was born July 20th, 1922, in Arkansas. He enlisted in the Army on September 22, 1942, and volunteered for the paratroopers. He was sent to Camp Toccoa and placed in 3rd platoon of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Alley made his first combat jump on DDay, 6th June, 1944. He crashed through a glass wall on landing but made it through the Normandy campaign. He jumped into The Netherlands in September 1944 as part of Operation Market Garden. He was badly wounded on a night patrol near Randwjick when a grenade thrown by a German soldier went off just beside him. This incident was depicted in the Band of Brothers episode Crossroads. Alley was evacuated, but in true Easy Company tradition, went AWOL from the hospital to return to the company in time for the Ardennes campaign. Alley remained with Easy until the end of the war, fighting through Bastogne, France, Germany, and Austria. He was awarded 3 Purple Heart medals and a Bronze Star medal during his WW2 service. After the war he returned home and raised a family. He was a contributor for the Band of Brothers book and can be seen in the veteran's interviews in the documentary and Band of Brothers miniseries. Alley passed away in 2008 Alley was portrayed by George Calil in the miniseries (pic 5) β™ β™  Picture 4: Moe with 3rd platoon buddy Shifty Powers β™ β™  #bandofbrothers #easycompany #506thpir #parachuteinfantry #101stairbornedivision #screamingeagles #ww2 #wwii #paratrooper #jamesalley #moealley #georgecalil #ww2veteran #ww2history #history #donaldmalarkey #shiftypowers #dday #currahee
