In Remembrance

I've just received some unfortunate news from the Colonel.  His message is as follows:


" It is with great sadness to announce that Lieutenant Colonel Ron Speirs, US Army (Ret.),  passed away this past week.  As I was told it was unexpected.  You may remember that Speirs was portrayed in the HBO  Band of Brothers series.  Speirs was a platoon leader in D Co, 506th PIR and later commanded E Co during the Battle of the Bulge. He also commanded a rifle company in the Korean War and eventually retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.

Another member of the Greatest Generation has passed his final muster. May he rest in peace.
