My father was a paratrooper with the 503rd Airborne Infantry Regiment from 1950 to 1954. His Battalion CO was Jack T. Shannon who during WWII jumped into Normandy with the 508th PIR and then went on to serve with Detachment 101 in the CBI Theater. My dad spoke to me often of his admiration for Lt. Col. Shannon. I found his profile on this site but there is no image. I have one and out of respect for Col. Shannon and my father's admiration of him I was wondering if there is any way I could add a picture of him to his profile.

Hi, my name is Carolyn Sharp. Jack Shannon was my maternal grandfather. My son has Grampa Jack Image tattoo on his calf. He is in uniform but at a much younger age.
