Sgt Charles E. "Chuck" Grant
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1915
Death: 1985

Sgt. Grant served with the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, "Easy" Company, during D-Day, Operation Market-Garden, The Battle of the Bulge, the Liberation of Hageneu, and the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest. He was portrayed by Nolan Hemmings in the HBO/BBC miniseries "Band of Brothers."

According to the series, Grant was shot in the head shortly after the war in Europe ended, but survived. He was supposedly shot by a replacement in "I" Company, who was later beaten severely by the members of Sgt. Grant's company, before being turned over to the M.P.'s.

His recovery was slow, and until his death, he still had trouble talking, and his left arm was partially paralyzed.
He owned a small tobbacco shop in San Francisco, where he lived until his death.
