......in May 1944 .....

So by December '44. the 101st Airborne in Bastonge had taken up the practice so they could proudly march out, shot up with heads held high, as William Bendix led them.

That's the way the movie portrayed the scene.

"as William Bendix led them."

If the movie was Battleground with Van Johnson, it was "James Whitmore", the Sgt that was limping as he called out the cadence. The movie dates back to 1949.
