Major Richard 'Dick' Winters on the 2nd of January; Hank Zimmerman on the 15th of January; Eddie Mauser on the 21st of January; Amos 'Buck' Taylor on the 24th of August and Bill Maynard on the 24th of September. They will not be forgotten and be forever remembered. Source http://www.menofeasycompany.com/home/index.php
A beautiful poem to all WW II veterans and to the memory of all those who are Airborne Forever:
"They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning we will remember them."
