Edward Heffron, of WWII's 'Band of Brothers,' dies

Rest in Peace.

PHILADELPHIA — Edward J. “Babe” Heffron, whose World War II service as a member of the Army’s famed Easy Company was recounted in the book and TV miniseries “Band of Brothers,” has died. He was 90.

Heffron died Sunday at Kennedy Hospital in Stratford, New Jersey, said his daughter, Patricia Zavrel.

Heffron and the rest of his “Band of Brothers” fought through some of World War II’s fiercest European battles between 1941 and 1945. A paratrooper in Company E, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, Heffron took part in the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium and helped liberate the Kaufering concentration camp in Landsberg, Germany. He received a Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

After the war, the Philadelphia native returned home and found work at a whiskey distillery. He later checked cargo on the Delaware River waterfront.

He was featured prominently in historian Stephen Ambrose’s 1992 book, “Band of Brothers,” upon which the HBO miniseries that began airing in September 2001 was based. The miniseries followed Easy Company from its training in Georgia all the way to the war’s end in May 1945. Its producers included actor Tom Hanks and Steve Spielberg. Heffron was portrayed by Scottish actor Robin Laing.

Along with one of his comrades, William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, and journalist Robyn Post, Heffron wrote a 2007 memoir called “Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends.”

In addition to his daughter, he is survived by his wife, Dolores.

Zavrel said funeral arrangements are private.

Senators blast Army over recruiting fraud scandal

Senators blasted the Army Tuesday for a recruiting scandal that involves thousands of soldiers and tens of millions of dollars.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., labeled the scandal one of the worst in Army history. It involved National Guard soldiers taking kickbacks for signing up new recruits. They scammed the Recruiting Assistance Program for more than $29 million in illegal payments. The program paid soldiers and even civilians thousands of dollars for helping to enlist a new recruit.

“The fraud investigation is one of the largest that the Army has ever conducted, both in terms of the sheer volume of fraud and the number of participants,” said McCaskill, who called the hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee’s financial and contracting oversight subcommittee.

The scams included soldiers taking credit for signing up recruits who had already enlisted. Five soldiers appear to have netted nearly $1 million in bogus bonuses. In all, more than 3,000 soldiers received payments that appear questionable. In all, it will take until the fall of 2016 for the Army to review all the payments.

“I want you to know that the accusations of fraud and other potentially criminal actions surrounding the program are as disturbing to us as I know that it is to you,” Lt. Gen. William Grisoli, director of the Army staff, told the committee.

Another $66 million in bonuses remain to be investigated, Grisoli said.

Docupak, the contractor in charge of the program since it began in 2005, first notified the Army in 2007 about potential fraud. By 2012, the Army canceled the program, which had been expanded to the active-duty and Army Reserve. In all, more than 150,000 new recruits entered the Army through the program that cost $459 million.

McCaskill pressed the Army about why it took four years to detect a pattern.

Only nine cases were investigated from 2007 to 2009, said Maj. Gen. David Quantock, the Army’s top law enforcement officer. It wasn’t until 2010, when 10 cases indicated “that we have a major problem here.”

“That’s a long time when you’ve got fraud going on,” said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.

The scandal has touched top levels of the National Guard, including two two-star generals and 18 colonels. None of them has been imprisoned, lost benefits or resigned for fraud, Quantock said.

“It is particularly egregious when it is our leadership,” McCaskill said.

The statute of limitations on prosecutions may prevent some soldiers from being charged, Army officials have acknowledged. So far, 16 people have been convicted and are serving time in the scandal.

“It’s going to break my heart if a lot of people get away with this,” McCaskill said.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., asked Army officials how the program went awry.

Grisoli replied that there was a breakdown in the Army’s acquisition and contracting procedures. The Army’s top auditor, Joseph Bentz, said investigators concluded that there was “very little” about the contracts that conformed with government guidelines.

Ayotte questioned the Army’s oversight of the contractor.

It was “insufficient,” Bentz acknowledged.

Marines leave Afghanistan after tough war years


WASHINGTON - (AP) -- The Marines are putting America's longest war behind them. They are pulling up stakes in the patch of Afghan desert known as Helmand province, where 378 Marines were killed and nearly 5,000 wounded in fighting that peaked four years ago.

On Sunday they turned over to Afghan authorities the keys to Camp Leatherneck, the sprawling base in Helmand from which the Marines surged against the Taliban in 2009.

Helmand was the epicenter of President Barack Obama's surge against the Taliban. The Marines focused on it so completely that some dubbed it "Marine-istan."

It was the fight the Marines itched for after they switched their attention from Iraq's Anbar province, which by 2008 had grown so quiet that Marines complained of boredom.

"There aren't a whole heck of a lot of bad guys there left to fight," the Marine Corps commandant at the time, Gen. James T. Conway, said in August 2008 with an eye on getting a piece of the Afghan action.



After the Marines had turned the tide in Helmand, the man who succeeded Conway, Gen. James Amos, said in 2011 that it was time to begin handing over control to the Afghans, whose ability to handle the Taliban and unify their fractured country would ultimately decide the outcome of the U.S. chapter of this war.

"We can't stay in Afghanistan forever," Amos said.

While there, the Marines took on the Taliban, mentored Afghan soldiers and executed a protect-the-population counterinsurgency strategy. They also suffered at the hands of Afghan allies who periodically turned their weapons on them in "green-on-blue" killings that peaked in 2012 but have since subsided.

The Marines point with pride to their successes in Helmand, where Afghan security forces now are in charge. But some question whether those gains will be sustained after the Marines are gone and the Taliban seek another comeback.

Just two years ago at the British-run Camp Bastion, adjacent to Leatherneck, the Taliban pulled off arguably their most stunning attack on a NATO base of the entire war: Fifteen insurgents breached the camp's security perimeter and, using grenades, machine guns and other light weapons, killed two Marines and destroyed or heavily damaged nine aircraft.


In all, about 76,000 Marines served in Afghanistan since 2001, mostly in Helmand, according to Marine Corps records.


The Marines are now departing as the U.S. prepares to complete its combat mission in December and transition to a NATO-organized follow-on mission, called Resolute Support, to train and advise Afghan forces. There are still a little over 21,000 American troops in Afghanistan, down from a 2010-11 peak of 100,000.

The saga of Marines in southwestern Afghanistan began with the controversial decision to make Helmand the main focus of Obama's initial surge of American troops in early 2009. Some believed it should instead be the neighboring province of Kandahar, whose far bigger population seemed to make it of greater strategic importance.

In his book, "Little America: The War Within the War for Afghanistan," author Rajiv Chandrasekaran wrote that the consequences were profound.

"By devoting so many troops to Helmand instead of Kandahar, the U.S. military squandered more than a year of the war," he wrote.

"Had the initial contingent of Marines been sent to Kandahar, it could have obviated the need for a full 30,000-troop surge later that year, or it could have granted commanders the flexibility to combat insurgent havens in eastern Afghanistan much sooner, allowing them to meet Obama's eventual withdrawal deadlines without objection."

When the Marines took on Helmand they did so with gusto. The scene of some of the hardest fighting was Sangin, a district along the Helmand River that for years was a Taliban stronghold. Dozens of Marines were killed in battles in 2010 that eventually turned the tide against an adaptive insurgency. In one four-day stretch in October 2010, nine members of 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, out of Camp Pendleton, California, were killed.

The toll that autumn became so great that then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates recommended pulling the battalion out of Sangin temporarily, though the Marines declined, saying it could break the spirit of that battalion.

In March 2011 Gates visited the battalion at its base near Sangin and applauded the Marines for their "strategic breakthrough."

"Before you arrived here, the Taliban were dug in deep, and as the British before you can attest, this district was one of the most dangerous -- not just in Afghanistan, but maybe in the whole world." Gates said.

Helmand was not the Marine Corps' first plunge into Afghanistan. In November 2001, Marine Brig. Gen. James Mattis led a contingent of Marines and soldiers, dubbed Task Force 58, into southern Afghanistan in an air assault that established the first conventional U.S. military presence in the country.

US military deaths in Afghanistan at 2,207

As of Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014, at least 2,207 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan as a result of the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001, according to an Associated Press count.



The AP count is three less than the Defense Department's tally, last
updated Tuesday at 10 a.m. EDT.

At least 1,827 military service members have died in Afghanistan as a result of hostile action, according to the military's numbers.

Outside of Afghanistan, the department reports at least 135 more members of the U.S. military died in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Of those, 11 were the result of hostile action.

The AP count of total OEF casualties outside of Afghanistan is six more than the department's tally.

The Defense Department also counts four military civilian deaths.

Since the start of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, 20,037 U.S. service members have been wounded in hostile action, according to the Defense Department.

The latest identification reported by the military:

—Cpl. Jordan L. Spears, 21, of Memphis, Indiana, was lost at sea Oct. 1 while conducting flight operations in the North Arabian Gulf; assigned to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron-163, Marine Aircraft Group 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California.

OBAMA AUTHORIZES 1,500 MORE TROOPS FOR IRAQ
By Lolita C. Baldor, AP

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A senior military official says that American military advisory teams will now go to Iraq's western Anbar province where Islamic State militants have been gaining ground and slaying men, women and children.

The teams are part of President Barack Obama's new directive to expand the U.S. mission in Iraq by deploying another 1,500 U.S. troops to serve as advisers, trainers and security personnel.

The official said it is likely that the bulk of the additional troops will be in Iraq by the end of the year. This would bring the total U.S. forces in Iraq to about 3,100, and would mark their first return to Anbar since the war ended.

The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity.

President Barack Obama is authorizing the U.S. military to deploy up to 1,500 more troops to Iraq as part of the mission to combat the Islamic State group.

Obama is also asking Congress for more than $5 billion to help fund the fight.

The White House says the troops won't serve in a combat role, but will train, advise and assist Iraqi military and Kurdish forces fighting IS.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest says Obama has also authorized the additional personnel to operate at Iraqi military facilities outside Baghdad and Erbil. Until now, U.S. troops have been operating a joint operation center setup with Iraqi forces there.

The announcement is part of a $5.6 billion funding request to Congress and came just after Obama met with congressional leaders Friday.

William Henry "Bill" Mauldin (/ˈmɔːldən/; October 29, 1921 – January 22, 2003) was an American editorial cartoonist who won two Pulitzer Prizes for his work. He was most famous for his World War II cartoons depicting American soldiers, as represented by the archetypal characters "Willie and Joe", two weary and bedraggled infantry troopers who stoically endure the difficulties and dangers of duty in the field. These cartoons were widely published and distributed in the American army, abroad and in the United States.
