Thomas Meehan was the second Company Commander of "Easy Company," 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. He was killed during the Battle of Normandy, when the C-47 Skytrain plane he was on was hit by German Anti-Aircraft fire over Beuzeville-au-Plain, approximately two miles south of the town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise. He was portrayed by Jason O'Mara in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers." On June 6, 2000, a memorial was established at the Beuzeville-au-Plain church to Meehan, and the other paratroopers killed when their plane was shot down.

Rest easy, sleep well, my brother. Know the line has held, your job is done. Rest easy, sleep well. Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held. Peace, peace, and farewell....|
