“I had my pistol in one hand, my cricket in the other…I crept along the hedgerow looking for a gate. Just as I found it, I heard a stir on the other side. I drew my pistol and got all set. Then I heard the click. That was the most pleasant sound I ever heard in the entire war.”  General Maxwell D. Taylor, commander of the 101st A D. It was the means for paratroopers to identify friend from foe in the dark. - Metal cricket with Pfc. Cecil J. Mick, “D” Company, 2nd Battalion, 502nd PIR.

The 506th PIR was dropped at Son. The drop zone was well recognized because the house had a adjacent barn that had the word Paulushoef written of the roof, that is how they knew their DZ. The family takes great pride on showing their thanks to the Screaming Eagles. In front of the house they have a memorial for the paratroopers in a shape of a chute. 4,500 Paratroopers were dropped in this area, 53 gliders landed also with more troops and equipment.
