The Band of Brothers Gets Smaller- Buck Compton Dies at Age 90

I just learned that Buck Compton died Saturday.  Here's the story and obit from the LA Times.

Seems the Band of Brothers is getting pretty small.  I really wanted to meet some of these men in this lifetime.  Hopefully, they were believers and I'll get to spend some time with them in the next.  And hopefully they are enjoying their reunion together where,

To fallen soldiers let us sing,
Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing,
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord

No more weeping,
No more fight,
No friends bleeding through the night,
Just Devine embrace,
Eternal light,
In the Mansions of the Lord

Where no mothers cry
And no children weep,
We shall stand and guard
Though the angels sleep,
Oh, through the ages let us keep
The Mansions of the Lord

(Mansions of the Lord, by Randall Wallace)
