Best Answer

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.
