COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Dan McBride | 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division - Army

6:38   |   Dan McBride came to the Army fully ready. He'd been shooting since the age of three and he attended the Citizens Military Training Camp during his high school summers. At age sixteen, he was qualified on every weapon he would be exposed to later in Basic training. He was scared of heights, so, naturally, he volunteered for Airborne.
