American Veterans' Center just released a three part video series based on the remembrances of Colonel Edward Shames of the 101st Airborne in World War II
Part 1 describes the grueling and competitive regimen required to even qualify for Airborne training. It involved a lot of hiking all over Georgia in the hot summer sun.
Part II describes deployment to England and the pivotal landing in Normandy
Part III takes viewers through the hard fighting in northern France as the Allies closed in on the Third Reich.
Colonel Shames tells his story with precise and entertaining detail. AVC did a wonderful job editing in period music and pictures to make it come even more to life.
Thanks to the good people at AVC for bringing great stories of great veterans.
