End of Greatness

The last of World War Two’s 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment has passed away at the age of 99. The regiment was the subject of an HBO series “Band of Brothers” and some of the things that they did became textbook examples of how to carry out various infantry actions.

With the loss of the last survivor of the regiment, an era of history has ended. Where they have gone, the reunions will be epic. Enjoy Valhalla, sir.

One reply on “End of Greatness”

Learned recently in a documentary that the 333rd artillery group provided them with a lot of protection but never heard that mention in any battle of the bulge documentaries. Apparently they were pretty damn fast and accurate at firing.
