Lt. Lynn “Buck” Compton was commander of 2nd Platoon of Easy Company in the 506th PIR, 101 Airborne – the “Band of Brothers.”
He died February 25, 2012 at the age of 90.
Compton was a true hero to me. He volunteered to serve his country in World War II. He came home, raised a family, and served the people of Los Angeles, California as a public servant.
My prayers go out to his children and grandchildren as they “grieve with hope” the death of one of God’s saints and look forward to a happy reunion in heaven, with all who fall asleep in Jesus.
