LTC ret. james Megellas on the History Channel

On February 2nd at 8PM EST James Megellas will appear on the History Channel.

The documentary that is going to be aired on February 2nd 2007 is called

The Lost evidence: Battle of the Bulge

And it will be about what happened at Chenaux, Bastogne and Herresbach

The Director did a lot of research into what happened at Herresbach(Belgium).

Herresbach is a small town that was attacked by the 504th PIR on January 28, 1945.

On January 28, 1945, during the Battle of the Bulge, Lt. James Megellas led his platoon of the 82nd Airborne Division on a surprise and devastating attack on a much larger advancing German force, killing and capturing a large number of the enemy and causing others to flee. In an act of fearless courage, Megellas single-handedly destroyed an attacking German Mark V tank with two hand-held grenades. He then led the charge of his men and seized Herresbach, Belgium, during this fierce action of the Battle of the Bulge.

As you know Maggie was recommended for the Medal of Honor, but somehow the part where he knocked out a Mark V Panther tank was omitted from the citation

You can all read this on this website or in Maggie’s book “All The Way To Berlin”

At the end of his research the director concluded that Maggie should have gotten the Medal of Honor.

He also fully supports Congressman Petri’s efforts in awarding Maggie the Medal of Honor.
