The last of the "Band of Brothers" has passed away


Recommended Posts



Former U.S. Army Pvt. First Class Bradford "Brad" Freeman, the last surviving member of the 101st Airborne Division's "Easy" E Company, the 2nd Battalion of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment that inspired the book and HBO series "Band of Brothers," has died.


Kind of sad when a "Tik Tok influencer" dies and we know in 15 minutes but an actual American Hero passes and it takes to days to find out.

Was he an original member with Dick Winters?

Yes, he was with the unit from England until the Battle of the Bulge where he was wounded in the leg. He caught up with the unit after they had entered Germany and was at Eagle's nest when the war ended. He didn't go through jump school at the same time as the rest of the unit but was there for the beginning and end of combat operation. He was assigned to the unit in February 1944 and was an assistant mortarman under Sergeant Don Malarkey.
