Post Oldest Member of the Band of Brothers; "Ed Mauser" Passes Away

Band of Brothers Hero, Ed Mauser pases away at 94.
(UKPA) –

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.

Oh my..........when I visited Germany earlier this year we made a point of visiting Luxembourg and Bastogne, Belgium and saw all the pertinent 'sights'......including a woods where they dug in (you can still see some of the fox holes), the Easy Company Memorial, and the American and German cemeteries there. Very moving experience.
I too, thank you who have served.

In the late 1960s I was able to see Berchtegaden,Eagles Nest and Dachau. The U.S. Forces Europe had an R&R Center there. Then in 2003 I took SWMBO and our son to the same places they had changed . I wanted my son to see what happened so that it may never happen again. Later the same month we were in the Czech Republic talking to SWMBOs second cousin and found out that some of the family had been shipped to and died at Dachau. It was very moving.
May God bless and keep those that have served and those that are serving.

I was honored to serve with the 506th in Korea 200-2001. Band of Brothers was required reading for us. I am proud to have been a Currahee.
