Band of Brothers Shifty Powers on the 2nd Amendment
From the Dickenson County Star -
“In later years, Dad really enjoyed talking to the younger kids and members of the military,” Wayne Powers said following his father’s death.
Wayne recalled a story his father told him about a village in England where Easy Company did practice drills. People in the village didn’t own firearms, and only had hoes, pitchforks and sticks to defend themselves. Powers said a small group of Nazi soldiers could easily have destroyed the village and everyone in it.
“Dad thought our country should never get in a position where the people couldn’t defend themselves,” Wayne noted. “That memory always stayed with him. He was always a big supporter of our right to bear arms.”
Although Powers’ has passed away, his many contributions to local students and the community, as well as his dedicated service to his country, will remain.
