My Grandfather served in the 101st Airbirne division, field artillery. Kind of like Band of 2021 The Same A Year shirt, there were a few parallels in the story line, but he did it with a howitzer. He was dropped into France at night. His only story was about hiding in hedgerows, and knowing what cigarette the German soldiers had by the smoke smell as they walked by. It took his unit over a week to find that gun. Later he was dropped into Bastogne. Battle of the Bulge. He would later attend an annual dinner to commemorate the “NUTS to you” reply the American general gave to German orders to surrender. He got his chance to tour Eagles Nest, a couple weeks after it was taken by the Allied forces, before shipping off for home. He was proud of his service, and very proud to be part of the 101st. But as stories to his grandchildren go, they were rare. The hedgerow tale was “One of a lot of things I’d rather not remember” Part of the Honor Guard at his funeral saw the two jump stars on his Airborne wings and in awe. “Almost noone these days has one, and your grandfather has two”

Best 2021 The Same A Year shirt
My great grandfather who never had a education beyond fifth grade was discovered to be a 2021 The Same A Year shirt by the army. He was made a aviation engineer and if it wasn’t for his poor eyesight could’ve been a pilot. He was stationed in India and as a corporal was the subject matter expert for the manufacturing of aircraft. Officers and senior NCOs had to refer to him when it came to technical matters. He also was allowed to test fly a lot of the airplanes since he rather have it fail on him then someone else. Shortly after Japan surrendered and the war was ending a new captain was put in charge and forbade my grandfather from test flying as he wasn’t a full fledge pilot. Enraged my grandfather took a plane one early morning and started flying the noise caused everyone to come out from the barracks and when all the officers came out he fly dived down and flew close to there heads that they all dropped to the floor and covered there heads. For that stunt he was discharged from service and went on to start his own mechanic shop which he ran with my grandfather (his son in law) for 30 years.
