"A" Battery 1/83rd Artillery, at FSB Bastogne 1970 Link courtesy of Jim Braun, Barney Downey and Neal Schwartz - 1/83rd Artillery.

Look around the 6:00 minute mark for the 1/83rd.

Neal Schwartz also sent this video (no sound on this video). Here is what Neal had to say...

"I was kicking around the web looking for some info on a buddy of mine that was WWII – 101st AB – 502nd  Parachute Infantry Division – 2nd Battalion – Company “B”,  and somehow happened to stumble on a documentary that I clipped a short video from.  When I saw the sign it looked darn familiar.  It was so cool to find it out there lost in a world of videos on the net.  It would be interesting if any of the guys might be able to identify any of the crew.  It’s a little grainy, but someone might recognize themselves from “A” Battery at Bastogne .  I don’t know the time frame; it came from a XXIV Corps documentary so it was probably not filmed by one of ours."

Follow up comment from Barney Downey...

"That video is 1st. gun section, (the gun I was on), the gunner is an E-5 that was our gun chief for a short time, the assistant gunner is a guy  nick-named "Pollack", can't remember his real name and the third guy I can't get a good enough look at his face  to know who that is.
 That would be 1970 as Neal guessed earlier. I could've been on the ground since I primarily humped "joes" and worked the powder bunker as well.......... wow, that took me back to Bastogne in an instant."
