Have you ever seen the 1949 movie, "Battleground?" If you haven't, go watch it right now. It's a classic WW2 movie telling the story of the 101st Airborne during the Battle of the Bulge.
One of my favorite stories 101st Airborne veteran, Carmen Gisi, tells is a post-war story of when he attended the premiere of this movie. It's a scene right out of White Christmas! In fact, every visit I have him repeat it to me. This last time I finally got it on my phone. Hope you enjoy! Swipe ➡ to see entire clip.

Happy birthday to the completely charming Marine Raider, Larry Schroeder. 🎂 95 and he can still "cut a rug!"
Love these infectious smiles! 😁 #battleofthebulge #armyvet #navyvet #wwiivets
Yesterday at a wonderful luncheon for World War II veterans hosted by a good friend in Fort Worth, we were serenaded by Battle of the Bulge veteran, Buck Sloan and his lovely wife Shirley. Here are three fun clips. Make sure you watch the third one... And listen carefully.
