Band Of Brothers Hero, Darrell ‘Shifty’ Powers Dies

June 20th 2009

“The world depended on them. They depended on each other.”

Powers, a Dickenson County native, died earlier this week at age 86 following a battle with cancer.

No Staples Center funeral. No mass 24/7 media coverage. Nothing except small article in the back section of the newspaper. And I only found it by accident today on a unelated rumor busting website. This happened a month ago.

:cort:

RIP.

Old news.

Shame though, sad to read about our World War II veterans dying. Pretty soon there will be none left...

This really pissed me off. I didnt hear this anywhere, and it happened a month ago.

Well they did a great job on it. I wonder if they will make more of them for some other company, maybe one over in the pacific?
