Re: Vincent Dapsis-194th glider 1945
Hello again, Connie Rossi !!!
I tried to post you at the kristi address, but without success, so I will go this
route once more.
The purpose of my attempted message earlier today was to inform you of an excellent film I watched last night on the History Channel.
Entitled SUICIDE MISSIONS, it profiled pilots who flew gliders during WW II. It ran from 10/11PM.
Unfortunately, I cut in on it well after 10PM, so I don't have the full story.
However, I recall that the 17th Airborne Division was mentioned at least twice. I can't recall hearing the 197th GIR mentioned specifically. But like I said, I missed the major part of the film.
Watch the TV listings, for they will probably run it again, as with most of the HC tales. (but not this week. I checked, and it is not listed again.)
Those fellows had some rough duty believe me.
