OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The oldest living member of Easy Company, the U.S. Army unit from World War II portrayed in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers," has died at age 94.

The Omaha funeral home Heafey Heafey Hoffman Dworak & Cutler confirmed that Ed Mauser died Friday in Omaha.

A message left for Mauser's family wasn't immediately returned.

Terry Zahn of the Midwest chapter of the 101st Airborne Division Association says Mauser had been battling pancreatic cancer.

Mauser was born in LaSalle, Ill. He was drafted in 1942 and volunteered for the 101st Airborne. He was assigned to Company E, or Easy Company, which fought in some of the fiercest battles of the war.

The miniseries followed the unit from its training in Georgia to the war's end in May 1945.
