In Honor Of...

If you've never heard the song "Blood Upon the Risers," go listen to it. The song has become the anthem of all paratroopers. In the wake of the death of WWII hero Dick Winters, I figured that adding a verse to the song would be the only proper way to honor him.

He forfeited the plowshare and he carried up his sword
With angels on his shoulders broad he fell into the storm
He brought the lamp of light to those by darkness had been blind
And he ain't gonna jump no more

Glory glory, lo America's eagle cries
Glory glory, lo America's eagle cries
Glory glory, lo America's eagle cries

He ain't gonna jump no more...
