Sergeant Jake McNiece of the 101st Airborne Division ready to drop into Normandy for the D-Day invasion (June 1944). He was a member of the original "Filthy Thirteen", a group of paratroopers who would loosely inspire the movie THE DIRTY DOZEN. A member later remarked, "We never washed a piece of clothing. We never shined any shoes or boots, and we didn’t salute officers. We didn’t go for any of that malarky, you know?"
