I diverted from a cruise in March and did a fabulous WWII trip following the path of the 101st Airborne during WWII. The trip is based on the movie Band of Brothers. I am very interested in WWII history. Hopefully, your father spoke of his war days and you have some knowledge of his part in the war.
I cruised out of New Orleans last in 2007.
He was one of the original members of the 101st Airborne. We was in Company 'F', 502 PIR, of the 101. He parachuted into Normandy the evening before D-day. We was wounded and captured on June 12, 1944 and spent the rest of the war at Stalag 4B Muhlberg. He died in 1987.
