Charlotte Observer app headline: NC paratrooper 'defeated Nazism, liberated Europe' in all of war's major combat jumps (can’t copy the URL, sorry.)
“Eatman was one of the last surviving World War II veterans who, as a member of the 82nd Airborne, took part in all four of the war's major combat jumps: Normandy, Sicily, Italy and Holland. By the time he died, only 16 of the 2,800 troops who made all the jumps were still alive.”
Eatman died last week at the age of 102. Anybody want to work on creating a profile for Eatman? My plate is full.
