May God bless and keep you William Guarnere
In honor of "Wild Bill"

Excerpts from "Airborne All the Way" & "the Paratroopers Prayer"
"......A silent prayer they say "Lord be with us forever Airborne all the way"  One Day they'll make their final jump, St Mike will tap them out, the Good Lord will be waiting, He knows what their about And answering in cadence, He'll hear the Troopers say "We're glad to be aboard, Sir, Airborne all the way"
"they shall mount up with wings like eagles......and walk the path of true service to God and all humanity"

Thank you for your sacrifice and service, our liberties and freedoms.
