John Roberts, WW II paratrooper with the Screamin’ Eagles 101st Airborne will be our speaker.  He jumped at the Market Garden campaign in Holland and then was a ground pounder to Bastogne for the Battle of the Bulge.   John shipped out to England with the 101st WITHOUT the benefit of Jump School in the States because we needed Jumpers right away and didn’t have time for training.  He jumped 3 times in one day as his qualification.  Bob John, Army Screamin’ Eagles Historian, will bring several Paratrooper items to display.  Sean Winn, Military Videographer and founder of Patriot Features, will show John’s Patriot Feature.
