Where did Private Ryan live in Saving Private Ryan?
Private Ryan in Saving Private Ryan never existed as he
was portrayed in the movie. His story, however, was based on an
actual event that happened to a member of Easy Company from the
506th regiment of the 101st Airborne. (This is the same company
featured in the book and mini series Band of Brothers)
Private Ryan (in the film) is from Iowa.
Private Niland was from Tonawanda, New York.
