James Gavin - 82nd Airborne
I had the great honor to meet General Gavin's daughter, Barbara, when I was invited to the 505th PIR reunion by Col. Ed Sayre. She was kind enough to give me this copy of her father while in combat on Sicily. He jumped at Salerno as the C.O. of the 505 PIR. I read his book...he was one tough man...an American hero. Barbara Gavin Fauntleroy has recently published a book of her father's letters home during the war. Here is the web address to her book. You will need to cut and paste it into you browser.
Here is General Gavin with General Ridgeway.
