    I have a thread about my fathers Husky experiences here.

    July 12, 1943 - 75 years ago today,1st Ranger Btn "C"Company was given the mission of leading the attack to capture the town of Butera. According to my dad's memories, dad and Oleson as riflemen were the first to enter the walled town. Tactically, to me It makes sense to send in a couple of new guys first to see how "hot" the place was rather than risk a more valuable seasoned Ranger. Life Magazine wrote the story. A good read.
