    Am not sure if many of u guys know but i was watching Band of Brothers and after seeing 3 episodes i decided to look up vets from easy company. on my search i come across a tearful thing, Major Dick winters the mastermind behind Brecourt manor Capture has died age 92 on the 2nd January 2011.

    Post Mortem - Dick Winters dies; WWII hero commanded 'Band of Brothers'

    For those who don't know him just have a look at what he achieved in easy company a REAL WAR HERO

    Richard Winters

    Major Richard "Dick" D. Winters (January 21, 1918 – January 2, 2011)[1] was a United States Army officer and decorated war veteran. Some snaps that I am uploading was of Major Winters.

    Major Winters was a true soldier, loved by his men. There was talk of him getting the medal of honor badge, don't know if this did happen before his death thou?
