Another one gone

In 2001, just after 9/11, HBO premiered their WWII mini-series Band Of Brothers, and few things have moved me more than it. To date, it's one of the most incredible things I've ever seen put to film, and encouraged my already huge interest in learning about WWII. I've read the Stephen Ambrose book, researched the surviving members of Easy Company as well as read the books they themselves have written, and tried to keep track of how they are now. So it makes me sad to learn that another of these incredible men, Darrell "Shifty" Powers has died. My thoughts go out to his family.
