"Wild" Bill Guarnere parachuted into France on D-day, found himself lost behind enemy lines without a weapon, scattered from his unit. Later that day he learned that his brother had been killed in Italy, "Dunc" was his brother's nickname. Later he got a tatto memorializing him. But on June 6th Bill fought Germans. "I killed a lotta people," he said when I photographed him, "I killed a lotta Germans that day."

For his actions assaulting Crecourt Manner later that day Bill was awarded the Silver Star. In October he lost a leg at the Battle of the Bulge.

I'm grateful I've had the chance to meet him and that he's on the Cover of War Paint.

You remember your standing order to tell him, whenever you see him, a redhead with big boobs sends hugs, right?
