The Screaming Ducks go back to the 1990’s. Way before the mainstream re-discovered the 101st. Based on friendship the Screaming Ducks later became an official registered association. On April 17th 2003 the Living History Vereniging ‘Screaming Ducks’ was founded in Arnhem.
It is never about us, always about the heritage of freedom, and the spirit of a generation. Started with 3 friends, the association quickly grew. A Band of Friends ready to show and tell the world about Them who fought for our Liberty !
The name Screaming Ducks was chosen because of the ‘slang’ name for the 502nd, dating back to WW2, the Five-O-Deuce or Five-O-Ducks (source: Rendezvous with Destiny).
