Born on June 18, 1923 in Wyncote, Pennsylvania, Guy Whidden — one of the last living WWII survivors — belonged to the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division as a paratrooper and machine gunner. Not only did he take part in the Normandy landings, Whidden was in Holland for Operation Market Garden where he sustained critical injuries and lost three best friends to the same mortar attack. After recovery, Whidden was sent back to Fort Benning to begin his new life teaching at jump school.
