Robert Rodat, who wrote his book surrounding some of the events and men of David Websters the auther of the Book base some of the story and men and Movie "Saving Pvt Ryan", Tom Hanks stared in the move. Mr. Rodat, wrote into the book/screen play the "Saving Private Ryan" which the E Co, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne. In the scene where Cpt.

His name was not mention but the charactor saw you know its my Dad by the red hair, buck sgt stripes, and a submachine gun. This series is where one of the men gets killed, Pvt Christenson. He was my Dad's best friend, and Dad said he wasn't aware of the units reunions, so he could not tell his stories. He said his friend was not killed the way the move showed. He said "I have no hard feelings, his friend died in his arms, I know how he died". This was the first and only time I ever saw Dad cry. Dad received the Broze Star and Purple Heart. About four months before Dad passed, he called to check on me; he was always checking on me, Dad told me how proud he was of me, finishing school, joining the Army, becoming a Paratrooper, making the Army a career, getting a college degree in Real Estate, teaching real estate. The best compliment he gave me, he said "the smartest thing I ever did was to marry the best, most beautiful girl, and smartest girl Vicki L. Libbs from Bryans Corner. I couldn't agree more. I know I said alot, but my service to this country was an extension of my Dads service to this Country. Thanks Billie V (Bill) Henderson, MAJOR US ARMY Retired
