A premium, highly documented 101st Airborne Division Grouping. All items of the grouping are museum quality and belonged til Airborne Infantry Commander of the 327th GIR (Glider Infantry Regiment), Captain Alfred J. Regenburg, who passed away 5 March, 2001.
Regenburg received his Purple Heart for being slightly wounded in action on 22 September, 1944 in Holland and a Bronze Star for his heroic actions against the German enemy in Marvie, Belgium, 21 December, 1944 (for further details check out the official citation pictured on this page).
Update September, 2012: Further research on Alfred J. Regenburg is currently being carried out with help from the great guys of the Trigger Time forum and Petra Pulles.
The grouping consists of:
