So sad to hear about the passing of Bill Wingett today.
William T. Wingett was born in Spokane, Washington, and had just celebrated his 98th birthday in July.
Bill enlisted in August, 1942, and volunteered for the paratroopers. He was sent to Camp Toccoa, Georgia, and placed in Easy Company, 506th PIR.
Just before D-Day he was transferred to the 2nd Battalion HQ Company and jumped into Normandy with them. He landed in a flooded plain behind Utah Beach. His gear was weighing him down and he was just able to get his head above the water to take a breath before he was again dragged under. He had to cut himself free of his equipment “The water almost did me in. I was heavily laden and landed in 7 feet deep. I am not a swimmer”
Bill fought through Normandy, jumped into The Netherlands in September 1944 for Operation Market Garden, fought through the hellish conditions of the Battle of the Bulge, and through Germany, Austria and war’s end.
He was honorably discharged in Nov 1945. He then reenlisted for 3 years in the 82nd Airborne. He later also served in the Navy.
He settled in Oregon and opened his own woodwork shop.
Currahee and rest easy, Bill, thank you for your service and sacrifice. You will always be remembered.

Years ago I met one of the Band of Brothers. I asked him if he remembered Captain Herbert Sobel, and he remarked on what an asshole H.S. was.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
