The Unrest of Those To Follow*

"The rest of those who have gone before us cannot steady the unrest of those to follow," Avalon Landing, Finding Forrester, William Forrester, as read by Jamal Wallace (Rob Brown), 2000.

Lynn "Buck" Compton died on February 25, 2012 in the state of Washington. He was a soldier in the 101st Airborne, a police officer, lawyer and judge. He prosecuted Sirhan Sirhan for the murder of Robert Kennedy in a kitchen at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, and retired from the California Court of Appeals in 1990.

In the Band of Brothers series he described his D-Day landing - "That's when I lost that famous leg bag you hear about. There I was, with a trench knife, a canteen and about six candy bars." With that, he set off in enemy territory to find the 101st.

May we always remember those who have fought to keep us free.
