There is a story making its rounds on the Internet about a fellow Currahee 2LT Brian Brennan of the 101st Airborne who was wounded in Afghanistan a year ago. The reason for all the hoopla is that the soldier woke from a coma a year later, after hearing the word “Currahee” being spoken by Gen. David Petraeus.
Although CBS got the word’s spelling and meaning wrong, it’s definitely a touching story, and one that should be shared with all. If you want to learn more about the word and it’s meaning, visit the 506th Infantry Association website.
