Go with God dear sir, unto the halls of valhalla, where you shall take your deserved seat at the table. We will remember you and your service to your country.

That's too sad. It's never nice to lose a hero...

First Shifty and the Major last year now the Lt. There are not many left of the real heroes. The print I own with a dozen Band of Brothers signatures on it is one of my most prized possessions.
