US Airborne Staff Sergeant “Wild Bill” Guarnere
William J. Guarnere was a US Army soldier who fought in WWII as a non-commissioned officer with Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, in the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division.
The night before the invasion of Normandy, Guarnere found out his brother was killed at Monte Cassino, Italy. He made the parachute drop on D-day. After regrouping with his company, the unit encountered a German patrol and ambushed it, affording Guarnere his revenge for the loss of his brother at Monte Cassino.
