  • Farewell brothers

    Dec 5, 2013

    "Within Easy Company they had made the best friends they had ever had, or would ever have. They were prepared to die for each other; more important, they were prepared to kill for each other." -- Stephen E. Ambrose, "Band of Brothers" On the training grounds of Camp Toccoa, Ga., they learned the skills necessary to parachute into hostile territory. Under the rallying cry of "Three miles up, three miles down," they fortified their endurance by running up and down the slopes of Currahee Mountain. Guided by the command of Maj. Richard "Dick" Winters, they headed into the mouth of the lion that was World War II, enduring such treacherous missions as Operation Overlord and the Battle of the Bulge. The Nation had made them Soldiers; their experiences in the heat of relentless battle made them a Band of Brothers. The exploits of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, are among the most recognized and revered in the annals of U.S. Army history. The Soldiers' tales became notably immortalized in the best-selling novel by Stephen E. Ambrose that would become a popular HBO miniseries. Beyond the screen and off the printed pages, however, exist the flesh-and-blood heroes for whom the experiences are more than an entertaining story. Very recently, the Nation bid a fond farewell to two of them. Corporal Earl "One Lung" McClung passed away Nov. 24, and Pfc. Edward J. "Babe" Heffron died Dec. 1. Both men were 90 years old.

  • Retired Sergeant Major Soldier for life

    Oct 18, 2013

    It's 6:20 a.m. on a typical Fort Campbell morning. As Soldiers begin to fall in formation and prepare for the strenuous physical training session that normally begins their day, they may or may not notice an additional member to their ranks. Dressed in his PT uniform and sporting a fresh Army regulation haircut, this "guest" could easily go under the radar during the initial morning darkness; however, eventually his enthusiasm would give him away. The next thing the Soldiers may also notice is that this new addition to the formation is a bit older than the average Soldier in the formation -- a lot older. Nevertheless, as the Soldiers hit the pavement running, so does their 83-year-old visitor, joining them as they sound off with cadence. While this guest may be a stranger to some, this new member to their ranks is really no stranger at all. Retired Sgt. Maj. Dayton Herrington spent 16 and a half of his 30 years of service in the 101st Airborne Division and, as a Screaming Eagle, has had many rendezvous with destiny -- a destiny he foresaw at a very young age.
