I recently received an email that was quite touching and I thought worth sharing here (see below). SSgt Darrell “Shifty” Powers served with the 101st Airborne Infantry Easy Company. Anyone who has read Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers or seen the HBO hit series by the same name will recognize Shifty’s name. Actor Peter Youngblood Hills portrays Shifty’s character on the HBO series.
