World War II veterans are also dying at a rapid rate. For example, Darrell “Shifty” Powers has recently died. He survive combat jumps and fight in both Normandy and Market Garden. He also fought through the Siege of Bastogne.
If you know anything about the history of World War II at all, you know that this man went through some of the toughest battles that American troops ever fought in World War II. It is amazing to me that a man could keep his sanity after going through all that, much less live to be 86 years old.
Strangely enough, it is hard to get a good account of all that Shifty went through on the internet. You would think that a man who was portrayed in all 10 episodes of a band of brothers would have more real info about him on the web. But here is the best account I could find.

The sun still quite and they tell us we should not be worried. So maybe you should start worrying.
Beggar thy neighbor. Really, the law allows no other choice. But it seems kind of immoral to take assets away from one group of workers and give them to another when they all paid in and all had the same agreement with the parent company. It will make for bad international relations as well.
