I was right. The Town Clerk knew everyone in the town of 4, How did Richard meet Rachel? All the draft age men in Burlington were away serving their country. The student nurses and nurses employed at Fanny Allen were excited to welcome the Force and boast their morale. There was a stampede of females. My best guess is Richard and Rachel met in May They wrote V-Mail letters, microfilming of specially designed letter sheets, to each other. The Force returned to Burlington near the end of September She gave him the engraved pocket knife before the Force left in October.
The Force arrived in Naples harbor on November 19, Immediately, they began strenuous physical training. The scouts secured two ropes for 2nd Regiment to climb the cliffs and lead the attack.
Toy Story 4. Walker  when Brigadier General Frederick, who had commanded the force since its earliest days, left on promotion to major general to command the 1st Airborne Task Force. It is well written and any movie fan of the war movie jaunre will enjoy this oldie, but a goodie. Henri Laurent Tom Stern as Capt. Ken Beaton. Average rating 4.
Unfortunately for the Germans, their arrogant commanding officer believed no troops could climb up the cliffs. Never doubt the power of the Force! The mountain is halfway between Naples and Rome in the Liri Valley.
Thursday, December 2nd, they rested and prepared for the attack during the daylight hours. At hours they ate cold K Rations. As soon as it was dark, the men of Second Regiment began to ascend the mountain in the rain with the temperature a few degrees above freezing.

The Force quietly carried all their supplies, water, food, ammo, mortar rounds and weapons.
Waiting at the top of la Difensa was 3rd Battalion, th Panzergrenadier and one-half of the 3rd Battalion, nd Panzergrenadier Regiment, battle-hardened experienced German paratroopers with their backs to the cliffs. Friday, December 3, at 1st, 2nd and 3rd Companies of First Battalion attacked the completely surprised the Germans. Within two hours 2nd Regiment had secured the mountaintop.
Near the end of the battle, a German soldier was waving a white flag. Captain Rothlin, commanding officer for First Company, left his cover to receive the prisoner. The German soldier dropped in a hole. A concealed squad of German troops cut down Captain Rothlin. He was dead before his face hit the rocky soil.
Immediately, several members of the Force eliminated the decoy and his squad. After that the Force only took prisoners when an intelligence officer needed to gather information about German troops and their battle plans. Each member of the Force killed in action has a story.

The picture of me from his helmet was included.
