Easy Company man dies

Post by 4LOM » 27 Jun 2003 13:21

For those of you who watched and no doubt enjoyed the TV mini-series Band of Brothers, I am the bearer of some bad news.

The real Denver "bull" Randleman died yesterday 26/6/03 from a long term illness.
as another of the vets passes away we should all reflect on the super human actions that these guys did over 50 years ago.
This guy in particular survived normandy, market garden, bastogne and the bulge, more than any one man should have to experience I imagine.

Rest in Peace "Bull"

World War 2 and some of their scariest
and dangerous events and battles

Marcus, i think he is talking about the "Katherine Hepburn Dies" thread compared to "Bull" Again....but i don't know of course.
Maybe more people visit the lounge than here....dunno....
I am sorry to hear about the passing of "Bull" too. R.I.P.

Yeah that's right

When the thread was made in WW2 movies and games section where the thread could be easily seen, because of Band of Brothers Series and people
could pay respect for that brave soldier.

The topic was moved to enemies of Third Reich, and wasn't visible for others,

So i tried to put in the Lounge.

I apologize if I heart someone's feeleings

I don't think there is anything I can say that would do the man justice.
Sorry to see him go.

For those who may have forgotten who "Bull" was in the series he was the husky blond haired guy who was hiding in the barn when he got lost from his unit and had to bayonet the German solider who haplessly wandered into the barn.

He then hid under some hay and snuck back to rejoin his astonished comrades in Easy Company.

Another gallant warrior has left us.

R.I.P.
