 Dennis & Scott Andras

Staff Sergeant Scott Andras (top) of the Louisiana National Guard’s 256th Infantry, the Tiger Brigade (which dates from 1769 and fought in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Battle of New Orleans, the Mexican War, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, and Operation Desert Storm), attached to the 2nd Battalion, 156th Infantry, at Fort Victory in Baghdad, crouches by captured ordnance, uncannily like his father had posed 30 years earlier. His father is retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Dennis Andras, vice president of VVA’s Louisiana State Council. In 1970 he was photographed at Firebase Bastogne where he served for 20 months with the 101st Airborne Division’s 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment.
