It’s the 70th anniversary of the siege on Bastogne! In and around Bastogne, Belgium, one of the largest, bloodiest World War II battles took place. You know it – The Battle of the Bulge. Seven decades later, the town of Bastogne still honors the sacrifices of the soldiers who fought the Nazis. I am absolutely honored and humbled to go on this special tour, and with the Wounded Warrior Battalion!
So you know, this is where the 101st Airborne/502nd PIR and the 436th Field Artillery Battalion defended Bastogne. Patton was involved. And, it’s when General McAuliffe gave his famous reply to a written request from the Germans for his troops to surrender. His one-word answer was, “Nuts.”
