Frontline Leadership: Honoring the Band of Brothers Who Liberated Europe

Recorded on May 3, 2005

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

On May 8, 1945, Allied victory was achieved in Europe. "The greatest generation" had met their first challenge in the battle to preserve freedom and liberty against a worldwide totalitarian nemesis. We are honored to host Buck Compton and Don Malarkey, two members of the "Easy" Company paratroopers, who participated in this epic victory and whose service to our nation was highlighted in the HBO mini-series, Band of Brothers. Join us as we salute the dedication and sacrifice of the World War II generation and the continuing debt we owe them for maintaining our cherished freedoms.
