tasked with seizing the french town of Pouppeville and holding it until the
2nd battalion of the 8th Infantry Regiment 4th Infantry Division and the
70th Tank Battalion, 4th Infantry Division arrive the next day.
June 5th 1944 C-47 transport airplane nearing the coast of France.
U.S. Army private Michael Taylor. a member of the u.s. army's 3rd battalion 501st parachute infantry regiment 101st airborne division is on his way to France.
To kick start the D-Day invasion which is set for the next day June 6th 1944 their task is to seize the french town of Pouppeville and hold it until the 2nd battalion of the 8th Infantry Regiment 4th Infantry Division and the 70th Tank Battalion, 4th Infantry Division arrive the next day.
Via Utah beach as he sits in the plane waiting for the order to jump he looks at his fellow paratroopers some men are praying some are smoking some are just sitting their alone with their thoughts.
Michael thoughts turn to his family his older brother Steven age 23 who is serving in the army with the 4th division and will come ashore at Utah beach the next day.
His younger brother Frank age 20 currently serving with marines in the Pacific and lastly his much older sister Marie age 46 who raised her 3 brother's after their parents died.
When it was time to jump the men hooked their static lines up did an equipment check and when the jump light turned green.
They jumped in 2 second increments when his parachute opened he breathed a sigh of relief, when he finally landed Michael took off his parachute uncased his gun.
And looked around for any of his fellow paratroopers but none of them were around. He took his compass and map out and cursed loudly
" damn it I am way off course I'm no where near poupppevile and I need to get now."
So he grabs his gun and heads to the objective but he gets lost he sees a house with it's lights on he knocks on the door then he waits.
