UWY-0001 Airborne Rivals Ed Pepping Easy Company 101st Autographed

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #19702

This is a great boxed set "Airborne Rivals, Freidrich August & Ed Pepping" and autographed.  The set was released in 2003 as an  "A Weekend of Heroes Convention Exclusive"  The set is made up of action figures Friedrich August, German Fallschrimjager and Ed Pepping, 101st Airborne Medic, Easy Company 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment and all their gear.  The box has some edge damage but is signed by Ed pepping on June 21, 2003.  Pepping made his first combat jump on D-Day into Normandy. Pepping was originally assigned to Flight 66, but for some unknown reason he switched seat with another medic, Earnest L. Oats. He therefore got off the plane right before it took off. Flight 66 was later shot down by German antiaircraft fire, and everyone on board, including Easy Company Commander Thomas Meehan III, were killed.  Upon landing, he had a concussion and cracked three vertebrae when his helmet hit his head, although he did not know it at the time. He helped in different aid stations to help with the wounded. Outside Beaumont, when Lieutenant Colonel Billy Turner was killed, the advance of tanks stopped as Turner was at the front of the moving column. Pepping helped to pull Turner out so the tank column could move again. He received the bronze star for his action. Pepping was not able to join Easy Company in France, because he was wounded in his leg. He was evacuated to a hospital, where his uniform, equipment and medals were stolen. Pepping went AWOL to rejoin Easy Company because a doctor would not let him out due to his injury.
