We’re working our way through World War II and over the last few episodes we’ve given you the history, the places, the generals, and the strategy.

In this episode, you hear from the Paratroopers themselves.  Their stories in their own words.

Here our Paratroopers share stories of war at its most intense, of humanity of its most violent.  These are memories of fear, courage, and love.

Our World War II Paratroopers have something to say.  Not just about the 82nd Airborne Division and about our spirit, culture, and values, but about our Nation and its best attributes.
We'll hear from Paratroopers who stormed the beachhead at Anzio, survived brutal winds jumping into Sicily, and fought through the Normandy hedgerows on D Day.

We don’t have very many World War II Paratroopers left. The ones we have left may not be with us for too much longer.  We must cherish them, their accomplishments for our world, and their stories.

The All American Legacy Podcast is produced by the 82nd Airborne Division Public Affairs Office and hosted by Lt. Col. Joe Buccino, Master Sgt. Dan Bailey, and Sgt. 1st Class Alex Burnett. A new episode on the legacy, culture, and history of the 82nd Airborne Division is released every Tuesday.
