Biography[edit | edit source]
Cpl. Scott Riley fought in Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge along with the rest of the 101st Airborne Division. At the beginning of the game, Riley was on a patrol with Sgt. Moody and Pvt. Ender when they encounter a German Panzer Division and Panzergrenadier's heading for Bastonge. Nearly everyone in the patrol was killed, including Pvt. Goldberg, who was mortally injured by a tank shell. Sgt. Moody, Cpl. Riley, and Pvt. Ender who had survived the ordeal, quickly raced back to allied lines to warn the CO, Cpt. Foley. Moody and Riley then made their way to the foxholes to help the rest of the 101st hold the line until the armored reinforcements of the 3rd Army had arrived.
On January 13, 1945, Cpl. Riley took part in a night attack to rescue some captured paratroopers and take a crossroad in preparation for the attack on Foy the same day, not to mention that he also participated in a raid to disable a PaK 43 battery that he ran into several days ago with Sgt. Moody and Pvt. Ender. The next morning, Riley's unit took part in the attack on Foy and eliminated several key targets in the battle, destroying Tiger tanks and breaking off several counterattacks launched to Foy by the Germans. He and his units were accompanied by tanks from 11th Armored Division; however, the tanks were destroyed by the Germans by the time they reached Noville. Two days later, as Cpl. Riley and the 101st pushed through Noville, they used a building as their "Alamo" against a large counterattack of Panzer's, Halftracks, and German Panzergrenadier's of 2nd Panzer Division until P-47s arrived to finish the job.
