On December 22, 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, as the Germans surrounded the Belgian town of Bastogne, a German messenger brought a message from his commander to Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe, acting commander general of the 101st Airborne Division, demanding his surrender. McAuliffe's response was simply "Nuts!" Vince Speranza, a nineteen-year-old army soldier, a machine gunner from the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, held a firing hole in the perimeter around Bastogne. This is Vince's story of the Battle of the Bulge and his life before and after the battle. Vince shares his memories of his early childhood through his service in WWII and his life until now as he is about to turn 90, a story you will long remember. Vince will be in Bastogne, at his home foxhole, on the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, drinking Airborne Beer, which his actions inspired many years ago.
