history

Remembering Easy Company's Frank Soboleski, on the one year anniversary of his passing in 2017. Frank was born in Minnesota in 1925 to parents who had emigrated from Poland and Austria (his mother was from Zell am See). He was one of 14 children and grew up on the family farm, learning to hunt, trap, and fish from a young age. As soon as he heard about the Pearl Harbour attack he wanted to enlist in the Army. He was just 16 and during the enlistment the recruiter asked to see his birth certificate. He had to wait. On his 18th birthday in 1943 he was able to enlist and was sent to Alabama for basic training. He volunteered for the paratroopers because he wanted an elite group of soldiers around him when he went into combat. He jumped as a replacement with the 506th into The Netherlands for Operation Market Garden in Sep, 44, and was assigned to Easy Company when they were resting in Mourmelon. He was in Shifty Power's squad in 3rd platoon and the two became good friends. He fought through the hell of Bastogne, being hit in the behind by a lump of burning shrapnel, but refusing to come off the line. Frank was with Easy until the end of the war. He was a low points man so was transferred to the 82nd Airborne until he was shipped home in Jan 1946. Currahee, Frank 👊 ♠♠ #bandofbrothers #easycompany #506thpir #101stairbornedivision #franksoboleski #paratrooper #parachuteinfantry #airborne #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #war #ww2veteran #veteran #soldier #ww2history #history #ww2photography #tomhanks #ww2photography #82ndairbornedivision

It isn’t easy being a brilliant inventor, always alone. Always misunderstood. Easy to turn bitter, make horrible mistakes. People are more difficult to work with than machines.
