I had the honor of briefly meeting Jake McNiece at the 2004 Currahee reunion in Toccoa, Georgia. I was photographing the event, and managed to turn several of the images into art.
Jake was a member of the 101st Airborne's legendary squad of paratroopers known as "The Filthy Thirteen". For a full accounting, be sure to read the true story in the book "The Filthy Thirteen"
