17th Airborne Division Mohawks in World War Two

Mohawked paratroopers of the now-defunct 17th Airborne Division board a plane somewhere in liberated north-central France on May 24, 1943, for the "Operation Varsity" combat jump across the Rhine River into Nazi Germany just 45 days before the end of World War Two. Under those steel helmets, many of the men were sporting Mohawks.. (See the Mohawked paratrooper standing in the plane's doorway at far right.)
