DD289 A Taste of Real Chocolate from WW2 U.S. Airborne

King & Country

A charming little vignette showing a young French girl clutching a small “Stars’n Stripes” in her tiny hands and greeting one of her U.S. Airborne “liberators”. As you can see this “Mohawk” Paratrooper belongs to the 101st. “Screamin’ Eagles” Division (the only unit that had some guys adopt the Mohican hair style). Grateful for the welcome, this GI is offering some chocolate from his ‘C’ Rations to the young girl ... probably the first time she has ever tasted “Real American Chocolate”!
