Firebirds honor original 'Band of Brothers' paratrooper
Firebirds from the 43rd Flying Training Squadron roll onto World War II veteran Brad Freeman's property Sept. 3, the day before his 96th birthday, to surprise him with a special gift and honor him for his continuing service to America, and for the inspirational example he has been for the military and civilian men and women in his community. Freeman, a paratrooper during World War II, is one of the E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne soldiers who were the inspiration for the mini-series "Band of Brothers." (U.S. Air Force photo)
