Private Weller
  • Rank: Unknown
  • Occupational Specialty: Paratrooper (radio operator?)
  • Unit: 101st Airborne Division

Weller (Daniel Cerqueira) was one of a small group of 101st Airborne Division paratroopers who were tasked with defending a bridge that crossed the Merderet River at the small French village of Ramelle. The paratroopers were later joined by a small Ranger squad who helped them prepare a defense against an expected German counterattack.

During the German attack Weller participated in an assault on a disabled Tiger tank. As a handful of paratroopers attacked the tank, the Germans responded with a 20mm flak gun that tore into the tank and its attackers. Weller was seriously wounded, and as he crawled away from the carnage he was shot in the back by a passing German soldier.

Weller is identified by one of the behind-the-scenes features on the D-Day 60th Anniversary Commemorate Edition DVD.
