A Man I Admired......

Richard "Dick" D. Winters, Major, U.S. Army (ret.), Company E (Easy), 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division
Winters, 2004
Winters, Somewhere in Europe, WWII
I just found out that Dick died earlier this year (January 21, 1918 – January 2, 2011).  He was just 19 days shy of his 93rd birthday.  He was the last survivor of "Easy" Company, the "Band of Brothers".
Please take a moment to honor his memory.
"I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said 'No… but I served in a company of heroes.'" Richard Winters 
"Let's all be careful out there!"

I have a thing for a man in uniform, especially a hero!

Hope you're well and staying out of trouble Wil! ;-)
