Currahee Passing

It is with great sadness that I inform all of you of the recent passing of former 506th Airborne Infantry Regiment Association President Brise Bickerton on January 30, 2010 while hospitalized near his home in PA.

To his wife Marjorie and his entire family the entire 506th Airborne Infantry Regiment Association officers, board of directors and membership send our sincere condolences.

Brise’s dedication to his family and to his fellow veterans and active duty soldiers was a model for all of us to emulate. His caring was something to be respected and he will be sorely missed. A “Currahee” was called to take charge and we know that his spirit will continue to get the job done. Brise, thank you for entering so many lives!


Donald E. Thies
2008/2010 President 506th Association
