Too bad that Howard Manoian turned out to be a US WWII veteran who felt he needed to 'upgrade' his experiences by fantasizing about being in the 505th PIR.
Manoian was found out to be a member of a decontamination unit, who was in a hospital after D-Day, being 'accidentally' wounded. Living a lie: sad, sad, sad.
