Jimmy James is dead. He was 92. We all know him from his daring escape from a German POW camp. McQueen played him in the movie.

Easter Heathman, from Bazaar, Kansas, was witness to history one day in 1931. At the time, he was just 13 years old. He died Tuesday. During the many years inbetween, he felt it was his responsibility to maintain the site and keep alive the memory of the man who was killed there. Marathon Pundit has the story.
