C-47 "Band of Brothers" Signed by Wild Bill Guarnere


This C-47 model is personally signed by William "Wild Bill" Guarnere. Guarnere joined Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division to fight in World War II. He made his first combat jump on D-Day as part of the Allied invasion of France. Guarnere earned the nickname "Wild Bill" and lived up to it; he was terror on the battlefield and had a reckless attitude towards the Germans. Guarnere received the Silver Star for combat during the Brecourt Manor Assault on D-Day, and was later decorated with two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts, making him one of only two Easy Company members (the other being Lynn Compton) to be awarded the Silver Star throughout the duration of the war while a member of Easy.
