WWII Paratrooper Meets Patton

Rob B. of File It Under has a great post about a story that his grandfather told recently at his 80th birthday party.  Rob B's grandfather was a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division and ran into General Patton after the relief (by Patton) of Bastogne which is better known as "the Battle of the Bulge".  It's a great story.

Be sure to check it out.  I'm sure that if that happened today, the paratrooper would be brought up on charges.

We could use a few General Pattons right now...
