Shifty Powers ♥ "When there was a sniper you sent Shifty in to take him out. Shifty was a damn good soldier in 3rd platoon. He was from the mountains in Virginia, born and raised with a gun in his hand, not like us city slickers. He was like an Indian, lived off the ground, was very observant, was in tune with nature. He could pick out movement a mile away." - Bill talking about Shifty p.74 Brothers in Battle - Best of Friends by Bill Guarnere/ Babe Heffron
