PFC Robert L Green 503rd PIR
Years ago, I added this magazine cover in the article about this subject. With a story about the 503rd PIR in training, this is one of the best period magazines on this topic for collectors.
Some readers had already come forward stating they know the paratrooper on the cover as PFC Robert Green. Apparently this is documented in the January 12, 1943 Edition of Look Magazine on page 62 where Mr. & Mrs. L.H. Green of Stephens, Ark sent in a picture and a thank you to the magazine which states “The Paratrooper on your Nov 3, 1942 Cover is our son, PFC Robert L. Green. Thank You for giving him this honor!”. Thank you Kenneth Peck for sharing this!
