Removal of Stub?
Myself and several others have done some major expansion work, and I'm asking if we should now remove the stub? Martorius 00:15, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
- Remove. --Darwinek 21:45, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
- Remove: It's got sufficient content for a standalone article. By the way, should be merge the "After the War" section with the WWII section? There's little point in having a separate section for just one line. --Scottie theNerd 03:48, 20 February 2006 (UTC)
- That addition was added here, by anonymous IP 18.104.22.168 , 23:45, 15 June 2007. Most likely just somebody fooling around. > Best O Fortuna (talk) 07:21, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, we've all seen the miniseries so we know he was "Wild Bill" Guarniere. His nickname is in the infobox, but should not be in the first reference. Look at another famous "Wild Bill" who served in the military, William Joseph Donovan, head of the OSS. He is not called "Wild Bill" in first reference, and he was famous for that. Let's show this man the dignity and respect that he deserves. Thanks to all for cooperating. MajorStovall (talk) 16:36, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
Year of Birth
On the page:
- "William J. Guarnere was born on April 28th, 1922."
In the book: Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends: Two WWII Paratroopers from the Original Band of Brothers Tell Their Story. By William J. Guarnere and Edward J. Heffron, with Robyn Post
On page 87, it says:
- "Our [Heffron] birthdays were eighteen days apart — he was born April 28, 1923"
Which is wrong and which is right?
- 1) 1923 -- Page 87 -- Guarnere, William J., and Edward J. Heffron, with Robyn Post (2007). Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends. Berkley Caliber. ISBN 978-0425217283.
- 2) 1923 -- His military enlistment records also say 1923.
- 3) 1923 -- He faked his age to get into the Citizens Military Training Camp in the summer 1938 at age 15 (which = 1923).

Year of Graduation
If he went to work at the tank factory after Pearl Harbor, and he then switched to night shift so he could go back to school, how did he graduate in 1941? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 03:58, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
