Blood on the Risers

 A new website to replace this blog

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
"Blood on the Risers" is an American paratrooper song from World War II. It is sung by the United States 82nd Airborne Division, the United States 101st Airborne Division, the 173rd Airborne Brigade and 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) of the 25th Infantry Division. This song has been featured on the television miniseries Band of Brothers and the video game Brothers in Arms. The song tells of the final jump of a paratrooper whose parachute does not work. This results in him falling to his death.
