Saving Private Ryan!


Welcome to our Saving Private Ryan campaign! Join us in our quest for Private Ryan. A story not about the glory of war, but one of war in real life. With all its horrors, pain, blood, guts, friendships, and FUBAR!

After a bloody landing on Omaha Beach (Dog Green sector) on D-Day, 6 June 1944, a squad from the 2nd Ranger Battalion commanded by Cpt James Miller is ordered to look for and "save" Private James Francis Ryan of Baker company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division.

The 101st (and 82nd) were dropped behind Utah Beach on the Contentin Peninsula. The problem is that both divisions were widely scattered during their drop. Units became badly mixed up and no one landed where they were supposed to land. Looking for Private Ryan would be like looking for the proverbial "needle in the haystack".

But "theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die" (Lord Tennyson - recited by Cpl Upham) or in other words, "what the f*** is that supposed to mean, corporal!"
