On the bottom is an original colour picture taken of the celebrating crowds in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in September 1944, after the city had been liberated by Allied troops. On the top is a scene depicting these celebrations in the episode Replacements, in the Band of Brothers miniseries. Eindhoven was the first major city to be liberated after the Operation Market Garden parachute drop, when the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, working with the local Dutch Resistance, reached the city on 18th September. By nightfall the Irish Guards Armoured Division had also established itself in the city. The city was subjected to German aerial bombardment that night. Then on the night of 19/20 September Eindhoven was bombed by 78 German bombers. The Allies had no anti-aircraft guns in the city, and the result was over 9,000 buildings damaged, and over 1,000 casualties, including 227 killed. The Dutch Resistance had gotten word of the planned German attack and were able to alert the Allies and civilians to the oncoming risk. If not for this, there surely would have been more lives lost. ♠♠ #bandofbrothers #easycompany #506thpir #101stairbornedivision #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #war #ww2history #history #eindhoven #dutchresistance #guardsarmoureddivision #militaryhistory #thenandnow #airborneinfantry #parachuteinfantry
Wednesday got me like.... 😴 Major Dick Winters has a well deserved power nap while reading about battle experiences. What dya think he's dreaming about? ♠♠ #bandofbrothers #easycompany #506thpir #parachuteinfantry #paratrooper #101stairbornedivision #screamingeagles #airborneinfantry #dickwinters #richardwinters #majordickwinters #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #history #ww2history
Crazy enough I didn’t know why my brother had the tattoo he did, until this weekend. I’ve had his tattoo since his death 3 years ago. I carry it for him, since he cannot. It’s not the nicest looking tattoo and I cuss at him sometimes about it too. While I love having this connection with him- for him- about him, I never knew the origin. While visiting Fort Benning this weekend to attend my sons bootcamp graduation, things fell into place. My brother also attended Fort Benning and was in the 101st Airborne division. Guess what their badge is? The screaming eagle! What the hell?! So there you have it. It’s amazing how often we don’t question. We don’t ask. We don’t dig for the meaning or the truth. When it comes to family, I do without question. Thank you brother for the clarification this weekend. I appreciate it! 🦅 #girlswithtattoos #meaningfultattoos #momswithtattoos #brother #grief #imissmybrother #inmemoryof #screamingeagle #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #armytattoo
« Seul ensemble » 3/501, 507 PIR Graignes, 8 juin 1944... Les patrouilles se multiplient autour du petit village. Les hommes savent parfaitement qu’ils sont isolés. Mais reculer ne leur vient même pas à l’esprit. Difficile de s’orienter dans un endroit inconnu, avec l’aide des civils, ces troopers s’orientent vers un point stratégique.... un pont!

To all our #veterans and also to my dad, thank you! 🙏👏👍👊💯⚔️ To all those who served you gave all they had and believed in principles that still makes this country great. This is my dad who taught me so much and that whatever you set your mind to you can do it. Some items he gave me which are priceless.

Here we have Gunther burrer gaining information from a prisoner in Normandy. Note he is wearing a Air Corps flying helmet. These helmets were to paratroopers training at jump school earlier in the war. #normandymuseum #ww2 #usarmysoldier #ww2history >#airborne #us #usa #usairborne #usairborneranger #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #82ndairborne #82ndairbornedivision #ww2photos #history #collector

The near death experiences that this man has endured and shared are down right out of this world! From getting shot at by tanks, near mid air collisions with a jet, to cleaning up the blood of the one other man he rotated with in the heli. Feeling so blessed you made it out and brought me into this world, You are my HERO Today and Everyday! 🙏💓 🇺🇸 #Vietnam #Survivor #101stAirborneDivision #American #Hero #USarmy

One of the best decision I made in my life. Not to be honored, but it helped me become a man! #101stAirborneDivision #AirAssault #USArmy #OperationIraqieFreedom #OIF #HappyVeteransDay
Hanging out with Dad a while back. Checked him out of the VA home to get a hot fudge sundae at DQ. Dad did one tour in the Korean War, and two in Vietnam. He had a distinguished military career. His last assignment was CSM of West Point Military Academy. In 2013 he was inducted into the Army Ranger Hall of Fame at Ft. Benning, Georgia. He was beginning to show signs of dementia even then, but pulled off the best speech of the day. It’s been heartbreaking to witness the toll that Alzheimer’s has taken so quickly. Thinking of you with fondness and love today Dad. #veteransday #75thrangerregiment #lrrp #101stairbornedivision
Just another day in paradise in Tikrit, Iraq. Lots of sand and sunshine. Thank you to all who served. ^^ ^^ #veteransday #veterans #veteran #101stairborne #101st #101stairbornedivision #bandofbrothers #fobspeicher #cobspeicher #speicher #spaceshuttledoorgunner

Happy Veterans Day to my brothers and sisters. I would tag you all but that would be too many people to tag. Just remember, I’m always here to talk. Whether you’re apart of the group I manage on Facebook for 101st Airborne Division or not.. you know my number, if not, you know you’re always welcome to message me on Facebook. Enjoy this day brothers/sisters! You deserve it! You’re never forgotten! I miss each and every one of you! I will have roll call tomorrow so don’t get too drunk tonight 😏 HOOAH #101stAirborneDivision #AirAssault #Airborne #Hooah #Rakkasans #RakkasansLeadTheWay #OperationEnduringFreedom #OperationIraqiFreedom
My dad was raised in the 50’s and 60’s by a single mom that worked four jobs to be able to provide necessities like food and heat. His father ignored him and neglected him. His family ignored him bc of the stigma of having a divorced mother. He was a stellar athlete that chose to quit playing sports so he could get a job to buy a car. He had every excuse to “find a safe place” but at the ripe old age of 17, he left home, joined the Army, and became a part of the 101st Airborne Division. He doesn’t talk about and he doesn’t seek recognition for it (but he DOES love a free meal for being a veteran...lol... he’s very frugal) and today I wanted to say thank you for humbly and willingly serving our country.❤️ • • • #veteransday #thankaveteran #mydad #thanksdadandiloveyou #airborne #101stairbornedivision #armystrong #manofgod

Korean War Vet 101st Airborne Division. Eleno Cano Sr. I Say Happy Veterans Day With Much Honor And Respect To My Grandfather. When His Country Needed Him He Answered The Call Without Hesitation.

Happy Veterans Day. Remembering my 101st Airborne buddy Terry Silva. #101stairborne #101stairbornedivision #veteransday
Happy Veteran’s Day to all my brothers and sisters past, present, and future of all branches. And especially to those I served with in the infantry: you knuckle dragging, ticket punching, practitioners of freedom collection and distribution, grunts; with you misery was a little more fun. Have a drink for the wars we’ve fought, the women we’ve loved, and the days we’ll never forget.

What an amazing gift just in time for Veterans and Remembrance Day. Thank you to everyone for the page reaching 23k followers. I am so grateful for you guys following and liking the posts and for the wonderful people I have met through this page. I have been a little worried lately as work and life have been so hectic, I haven't had as much time as I'd like to spend on here, and I hope y'all haven't felt neglected 😉 It is an honor to be able to share the stories and feats of these brave men, and I hope I do them justice with my tellings. I always hope that by sharing the story of Easy Company that this also in some way introduces and shares the bravery and sacrifices of all the countless other companies and people who gave so much during that time. They truly were and are a remarkable generation and we are so lucky to share a time with them. So I am sending each and every one of you love on this weekend.

[1.07 - THE BREAKING POINT] for @sparkyspeirs 💖💞
This boy makes me proud. Last week he offered to carry a pregnant woman’s bags to her car. Today he offered to help a lady with her trolley because she was struggling because she was carrying her dog. He walked her dog with her to her car and she gave him £5 to say thank you. That £5 he put straight into the collection pot ❤️ #mybaby #myboy #101stairbornedivision #paratrooper #binoculars #soldier #ww2 #proud #respect #poppy #poppyselling
