Hello,
My name is Jim and I am a volunteer at the Arizona State Veteran Home here in Phoenix. So is my 1 year old golden retriever, Leroy. I have met many memorable veterans at the home over the years but have become rather close to an individual who answers to the name Earl "Dan'l" Boone. He was 2nd Battalion, F Company. He didn't want me to contact this site on his behalf but I don't listen too well. Mr. Boone is doing very well here at the home and is quite popular. We often visit for hours at a time and discuss anything from sports to politics. He is quite the character. The other day I drove into the parking lot of the home. I hadn't had a haircut in a several months. As I walked up to him he said to me he thought he saw my truck drive by but thought a girl was driving it! He is very proud of his service with the 517th and proudly wears his paratrooper hat everyday and shares the good stories with me. I don't know if Mr. Boone has an email address but if you would like to say 'hi' to him you can email me and I will get the message to him. God bless.
Jim

Love this site, as it helped me learn more about my father's uncle, as I am working on our family tree. I especially appreciate the service that all of these men put forth, to protect our country. Thank you so much.
And to my Great-Uncle Jesse, I am sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you, but I am proud of you just the same.

I was first aware of this unit when I watched the movie "Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed". I was already interested in WW2 history. The interest was sparked by the fact that a majority of the available men in my family fought in this war. My paternal grandfather was a small arms repairman in the Pacific (Army), maternal grandfather was anti-tank squad lead with the 104th Inf and a great uncle was wounded at Pearl Harbor just to name a few. I grew up close to my maternal grandfather since other one died when I was very young. My longer living grandfather told me his war stories from being in the front lines in Holland, Belgium and Germany. Anyway like I said I enjoy reading and learning WW2 history. In regards to airborne, I primarily heard about 101st and 82nd so after becoming aware of this one I wanted to check out this unit's history.
