The first words out of my mouth when I saw this news story were “Aww man!”You guys know how I respect and love our veterans, and whenever we lose a brother, I am terribly saddened. Rest in peace, Wild Bill.
Band of brothers was an amazing read, and an even more amazing short series. If you are a patriot, or you care about our country’s involvement in World War Two, then I encourage that you watch this series. It is extremely educational, and with a bit of flair shows us the ugly side of war, along with the not so ugly bonds and powerful friendships that are forged during these difficult times.
We honor, and send our condolences to the friends and family of Wild Bill during this sad time. Rest in peace brother. Our friends at Fox news have more.
William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, one of the World War II veterans whose exploits were dramatized in the TV miniseries “Band of Brothers,” has died. He was 90.
His son, William Guarnere Jr., confirmed Sunday that his father died at Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Guarnere was rushed to the hospital early Saturday and died of a ruptured aneurysm early Saturday night.
The younger Guarnere told FoxNews.com that like so many of his generation, “Wild Bill” didn’t talk about his service, even though he lost his leg in combat.
“All we knew was he lost his leg, and that was it,” William Guarnere Jr. said. “People knew more about (his service) than we did.”
