17th Airborne Tribute Videos
I re-visited this 17th Airborne remembrance site the other day:
Dad was a veteran of World War II,
and served in the Glider Infantry
and was attached, for most of his service
as an infrantryman,
to the 17th Airborne Division,
during the Battle of the Bulge
and other critical engagements
and in the comments found out about these guys who are a group that hosts a multi-player first-person shooter on-line. (I think. I admit to not being really up-to-date on this stuff.) Anyhow, someone there has put together two videos (see the lower right section of the site). One of them is a photo tribute "to the real soldiers of the 17th" and the other is built from scenes from the video game itself. They're both worth watching, and are moving in different ways.
I think it's pretty neat that someone from this group took the time to seek out the men whose "brotherhood" they've chosen to represent in their game, and especially that they respect the history.
