NOW AVAILABLE IN AN iPad Edition at $9.99!

Selections from three collections of personal snapshots which originated from the Paratroopers of the 3d Battalion, 503d Parachute Regimental Combat Team.

The images aren't exclusively of "G" Company, but they are what the men of "G" did and saw when they weren't being shot at. The main collection of images are known as "The Foster Collection" because they were donated to us in his memory. Despite the name, the original B&W snapshots are largely the result of the efforts of Chet Nycum and Mike Levack, around whom the core of the images originated. This book is our contribution towards the preservation of the 503d PRCT Heritage, so that people may have a glimpse of what is essentially a forgotten campaign of the 503d.

The publication is a project of the 503d PRCT Heritage Regiment website at
