of Major Ed Freeman on Aug.20, 2008?
Feb. 23, 2014—I guess August was a busy month in 2008 for celebrity deaths. There were 178 of them around the world. For that reason it was easy to miss Ed Freeman because, with so many important people dying that month, it's really easy to skip the guy who never made it to the silver screen or the tabloid headlines. But, you would remember Ed Freedom if you ever saw the Mel Gibson movie, We Were Soldiers, and recalled a helicopter pilot called "Too Tall." Freeman was six and a half feet tall—too tall to fly, hence the nickname.
