One of the Original Members of the Band of Brothers

  • November 10

    Presented by Col. Edward D. Shames, a member of E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne, the group that landed at Normandy during World War II.

    Stephen Ambrose wrote the book and HBO made the mini-series Band of Brothers a household name. But the real story of E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne from their heroic landing at Normandy through Hitler’s “Eagle’s Nest” is best told by the brothers themselves. Colonel Edward Shames discusses his experiences as a member of this elite group.
