US Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt (C) riding in jeep, visiting US troops stationed in Sicily during WW II. 
Location: Italy 
Date taken: 1944 

I joined the 82nd. Airborne Div. after being discharged in August 1945 and was sent to Germany. I do not see a shoulder patch with this WW2 picture showing President Roosevelt with American troops in Italy  Those soldiers with the president are Airborne soldiers of either the 82nd, or 101st.Airborne Division. . I know this because the troopers are wearing paratrooper jump boots and they have their trouser legs bloused. During WW2  the Airborne troops were allowed to blouse their uniform trouser legs. This is the reason non paratrooper soldiers were called "legs."  This was short for straight leg uniforms. When I returned home wearing my jump boots and my trouser legs bloused my girlfriend [who is now my wife of 62 years]  had never seen any soldier with bloused uniform legs before and she asked me why I done this. She thought the straight leg uniform I was wearing during my last furlough before I completed jump school looked better. She  really freaked out when she found out the Paratroopers used the tops of condoms [furnished by the Amy]  to blouse their trouser legs. .  Bob
