Godspeed and Semper Fi, Mr.Ollom
Woops...that picture blew up way big on me.

82nd ABN 1/508th BN!!
May we always fight as hard and as courageous as this great American!
I had a mentor who trained me well (tool and die) who was 82nd airborne during ww2. A great man. Nothing flustered him. Nothing aggravated or fazed him in the least. I’m good at what I do but, i still do not know how he did some of the things he did. And I saw not by far his greatest. Peace Harry Clements.
