Band Of Brothers

Major Dick Winters, Easy Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, US Army, the central character of Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers, died recently at age 92. And so they leave us, the WW2 fighters, the finest generation, at the alarming rate of 10,000 a day, and soon there will be no more of them. But Easy Company was not the only band of brothers in WW2. The entire country shared in the struggle, the country was of one mind, one spirit. We are not of one mind, one spirit now. Rancid partisanship divides us, the Left perfectly willing to lose a war for political gain. Will we ever again be a band of brothers?



We were brothers once

But are no more

Perhaps it takes

Another war

A war to death

For us to be

One again

And proud and free

Divided now

The left and right

As far apart

As day and night

Fingers point

And daggers fly

The truth is dead

Killed by the lie

The noble band

Of men now gone

Once ushered in

A noble dawn

A dawn that pols

And newsmen too

Debased and took

Away from you

The brother band

Will soon be gone

Beneath the flags

Upon the lawn

Gone to God

To their reward

For liberty

They drew the sword
