Shifty Powers - Another Eagle Has Soared...Video
Currahee - We Stand Alone Together.
The mountains of my home has produced many a great man. Besides the thousands of coal miners that powered a nation we have politicians, writers, and actors. Lesser known is the many soldiers that came from the coalfields to protect our country. Men that ask nothing in return. Men that served in hell and returned to be husbands, fathers, and neighbors. The dark hollers have produced many a fine man...Shifty Powers was one of them.
Shifty passed away this week. Another eagle has soared. I can proudly say that I shook this great man's hand and thanked him for everything I have in life. A tribute video is here. Have you thanked a veteran this week? Have you thanked one ever?
