History of the 505th PIR
The 505th PIR was created who knows how long ago on Day of Defeat: Source. It was initially commissioned by a young lieutenant colonel, just out of West Point, David J. DeBlanc. Formerly under the command of General Lee, Col. DeBlanc wrote a pamphlet, entitled "Enough of that Mickey Mouse Bullshit". These are theories and observations on idiotic operations. They would for the first time be tested.
Unlike two or three regiments that were created before the 505th by expanding or dividing existing battalions, the 505th left nothing. Among the staff who were transferred initially was a large cadre of officers and NCOs from the Airborne Command. Another group came from the newly formed 503rd, 502nd or other of the 504th PIR but nobody gives a shit about them. Most remained in the 505th and became the backbone of the regiment. But the vast majority of men and officers came directly from the parachute school on the 'dod_506th_bct_training' map. Once the promotions were patented, they were sent en masse. So much so that when the regiment was sent to New Orleans, October 1, 1942, he was ready to meet its normal complement for a regiment.
