Bois Jacques Forest

North of Bastogne, Belgium between Foy and Bizory lies the Bois Jacques forest. During WWII’s Battle of the Bulge, this area was held by members of Easy Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division. Numerous remnants of foxholes can be found in the tree line along the road between Foy and Bizory. If you look at the pictures, you will see the fox holes are not that big nor, I imagine, were they very comfortable. We were there in the light of day but the trees shadowed the place and it wasn’t warm. Fox hole fighting was not a great occupation.
