Private Glen Blackburn

One of the GIs of the airborne artillery near their shelter in a ditch just behind a hedgerow that helped shield their gun emplacement. Pvt. Blackburn and others like him doubled in brass. They served not only as artillerymen but also as airborne infantry, helping to rout out German snipers and clean up their machine gun nests.
