“PFC Russell Foster was in the 82nd airborne 505 pir through the years of 1950-1953. He was from New Jersey and after the service he went back to The Garden State where he met my mom. Like myself her name too was Elizabeth. She was the love of his life and they had nine children together, 12 grandchildren and 3 great grand children at the moment. Russell was an extremely hard worker who always put his family first. He always said the best time of he life was when he was serving in 82nd airborne. His wife died on 9/26/92 and we lost my dad, Russell on 1/11/15 RIP”
