|A group of paratroopers at Marmion Farm, Normandy
I created this website in order to share information regarding WWII Paratroopers and any information pertaining to their
brilliant fighting history during World War Two.
It is dedicated to all the men who jumped out of fully functional aircraft or who entered battle by glider. It is these
men who have inspired me in my life and as long as there are people who are interested in their stories, I will be there to
tell those stories.

I am extremely proud and excited to announce that my tour company, Pathfinder Tours, has teamed with Jake Powers and
Chad Weisensel in offering the Band of Brothers Tour experience to our customers!
Jake Powers created the Band of Brothers Tours along with his mentor and close friend Major Dick Winters, of the famous
Easy Company 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Jake is the official Easy Company historian and knows more about the men and
the company than anyone alive.
Chad Weisensel is active with Honor Flight out of Wisconsin, providing trips to WWII veterans to Washington D.C. in order
to visit the WWII National Monument. He is an avid historian on WWII and is especially versed in Airborne history. Chad will
be providing his expert care for our guest veterans as well as speaking at certain locations during the tours.
We will be joined by several actors from the Band of Brothers series! Scott Grimes (Malarkey)
and James Madio (Perconte) will join us on the Band of Brothers full tours in 2010!

Donald R. Burgett WWII 101st Airborne veteran and author of several books that detail his combat record with A Company
506th Parachute Infantry Regiment.
We just returned from our Holland/Bastogne tour and to say that everyone had an excellent time would be an understatement!
Our tour group including Donald R. Burgett A/506th WWII and Dan and Mrs McBride F/502 WWII, landed at Schipol
airport in Amsterdam, the morning of 15 September, 2009. Sparky took the group to the Airborne Museum at the Hartenstein Hotel
in Oosterbeek, west of Arnhem, so that became our first visit. After a tour of the museum we ate lunch at the Cafe Schoonard
and met some British Airborne veterans of the invasion.

My friend Fred Bahlau was interviewed by his local newspaper in March 2008 and the whole thing was captured on video.
"Fast" Freddy as we call him, tells a story like none other. Mr. Bahlau will most probably be a guest on one of our future
