The Allies rushed the airborne divisions in to stop the penetration. Jim Haley went in with the 82nd Airborne Division and Jim Page with the 17th Airborne Division made a heroic stand at Bastogne. Honald Bucker's 4th Armored Division finally broke through to rescue the cut off and beleaguered "Battling Bastards of Bastogne." Other units like Willard Fauchier's 739th and Marion Beavers' 782nd Tank Battalions closed the bulge and pushed the Germans back into their own country.
