Battlefield Cant- Normandy Fields
"That’s what we found the next morning, the four of us, although we didn’t relize at first whose plane it was. The plane was out in a field beyond where we had landed. It was all torn up, burned, pieces of aluminum, dead bodes, so we didn’t spend much time there. This kind of thing happened and you didn’t dwell on it, you just got back to business."
Forrest Guth, Easy Company, 101st. PIR

 Excerpt from “A Paratrooper’s Prayer”
All mighty God, Our heavenly Father, who art above us, and beneath us, drive from the minds of our paratroopers any fear of space in which thou art ever present. Give them confidence in the strength of thine everlasting arms to uphold them. Endure them with clean minds and hearts that they may participate worthily in the victory which this nation must achieve.
