Outstanding article from Blackfive on one of the original "Band of Brothers."

Airborne Icon and Hero Passes On - Godspeed, Darrell "Shifty" Powers

These men are truly national treasures, and it's sad that we have a bazillion days of national mourning for a pedophile singer weirdo like Michael Jackson, but these men get a few lines in a local paper.

Thank goodness for the Internet so they are not forgotten.

If you have never seen Band of Brothers, I highly recommend it...just watch the "Day of Days" episode if you are not patient enough for the whole series.
