Honor one of the "Band of Brothers"

The HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers" is one of my all-time favorite series. It's an amazing true story of heroes in a time when America needed them most. I was saddened then to hear from my friend Anthony Burris that one of the "Band of Brothers" featured in the miniseries, Darrell "Shifty" Powers, died of cancer June 17 at the age of 86.

As word of his passing spread online, many are asking how they can show their thanks. I've learned that you can visit THIS LINK to leave condolences. Hurry though, it's only available through July 20.

As the grandson of a WWII vet who is no longer with us, I know that this "Greatest Generation" is getting smaller every day. Let's honor them while they can. Our condolences to the Powers family.
