I saw this wonderful story about Darrell “Shifty” Powers, who passed away in June, and wanted to share it. He was an original “Band of Brothers” as written by Stephen Ambrose. My husband forwarded the email to me about him and I forwarded it on realizing that too many people have forgotten about World War II.
I was pleasantly surprised by the story because like the original writer, I thought that the email would only be passed around the military community. Many need to be reminded that 16 million people just like “Shifty” served in World War II. I would encourage all to read “Band of Brothers” because it truly is an inspiring story of heroism and sacrifice in the face of unspeakable odds.
Have a wonderful day!
