    Sad Day. Dick Winters of Band of Brothers Easy Co Dies

    Dick Winters led a quiet life on his Fredericksburg farm and in his Hershey home until the book and miniseries “Band of Brothers” threw him into the international spotlight.

    And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remembered-
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother
    Thank you Sir.

    God bless him and his family. He was a true hero. A small piece of America died with him.

    I have said this before but think it should be said again. If you have family or friends that have served in a war/conflict, please talk to them. Both of my grandfathers served in WWII and I kick myself weekly because I didn't get to find out more about them and what truly happen when they served!

    Another Hero Passes And Only The Patriots Remember And Honor Him

    A very sad day indeed...many of Easy Company have gone to that great Battleground in the Sky. How many are left?

    We need to honor those that have come before us and remember what hey did and died for...us. We have to carry the battle to the enemy now and be vigilant to keep our freedoms these men and women fought and died for.

    And yes, if you have Veterans in your family please do speak with them and listen to their memories of wars and battles from the past. My father was in WW2, Korea and Vietnam and he never would talk to me about what he experienced. It may have been because I was only a kid then and I never asked him about it when I got old enough to understand the atrocities of war.

    Good bye Major Winters.

    Major Winters, may you be received with great joy in the life to come for your contribution to the lives of us here on Earth. Your heroism, along with those "Bands of Brothers" who came before, helped make possible the rights and liberties we now enjoy.

    BoB is one of the shows I am always compelled to watch when it comes on and I always shed a tear when I hear the old warhorses talking about the buddies they lost in the battles.

    WW2 was the last honorable war we were involved in and that generation were some of the finest men our nation has ever produced.

    Have the Band of Brothers set. Watch it a couple of times a year. Takes a few days. Worth every minute.

    Thank you Mr. Winters, Rest in Peace. You will have a heroes welcome in Heaven.
