“Wild Bill” Guarnere likes the Dutch, disses the French

This is a great bit of video of the real “Wild Bill” Guarnere talking about the warm welcome the 101st Airborne were given by the Dutch in contrast to the indifference of the French. Wild Bill was speaking at American Veterans Center Conference which was held in DC on November 9-11 2006. Joining Wild Bill and sharing stories at the conference were some of the other members of the 506th who were immortalized in the book and TV series Band of Brothers – Babe Heffron, Buck Compton, Shifty Powers, Earl McClung and Don Malarkey.
