Band of Brothers Hero, Ed Mauser pases away at 94.
The oldest member of the "Band of Brothers
" who fought in some of the Second World War's fiercest European battles has died at 94.
Ed Mauser had shunned the limelight and kept his service with the US Army unit a secret, even from some of his family. He was the oldest living member of Easy Company
, 506th PIR
, 101st Airborne Division
better known now as the Band of Brothers.
But his role came to light only after his brother-in-law got him a copy of the HBO mini-series Band Of Brothers, said Terry Zahn, who met Mr Mauser during a 2009 Honour Flight trip to Washington DC to see the wartime memorial.
Major Dick Winters,
the Commanding Officer Easy Company of Hershey, PA died earlier this month at age 92.
