The more things change
Breach, Bang, Clear has an interesting photo piece matching up WWII era airborne photos with that of today’s Joes. Interestingly enough, the modern ones are of the Texas Army National Guard’s 143rd Airborne Battalion of the 36th Infantry Div (ARNG).
The 143rd is not the stereotypical National Guard unit. The battalion is full of combat veterans and Rangers, including many 75th Regiment veterans.
