Military Snapshots - 82nd Airborne at Operation Market Garden

Members of the 2nd Battalion, 505th, parachute onto DZ "T" in Holland during Operation Market Garden. Because a navigation error put serial A-5 on course to arrive on DZ "N" at the same time as the 3rd Battalion, 505th serial, Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin H. Vandervoort and the pilot of the lead plane in the serial were forced to do some fast thinking and divert the serial to DZ "T." Photo by William H.
