82nd Airborne Podcast

Steve Zaley spent three decades listening to his father’s stories about fighting in World War II with the 82nd Airborne Division’s 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment.  He spent another twenty years writing a full anthology about his father’s experience.  The book, “They Are Only Gone If They Are Forgotten,” is the subject of the Senior Radio in Buffalo NY.
