Captain Jennings was a minor character who was mentioned in the film, Saving Private Ryan as the officer selected to be in charge of the Ramelle Paratroopers during World War Two shortly after D-Day.


Captain Jennings dropped into Normandy on June 6,1944, part of Operation Overlord with the 101st Airborne. A couple of days after the jump, a Colonel decided to make Jennings the commander of a group of Paratroopers to head on and defend the town of Ramelle. He was able to get the men into the city and drive out the Germans. Some time later, Ramelle was bombed by 88s, killing Jennings in the process; his command passed on to Corporal Fred Henderson. He was never seen in the movie.
