Richard Winters, Col. U.S. Army (Ret.) Dies

The paratrooper officer who lead Easy Company and other units during World War II and became something of a household name thanks to historian Stephen Ambrose ‘Band of Brothers’, Col. Dick Winters has passed away.

In never met the man, but I have read Band of Brothers, seen the miniseries and number of times and I hope that both showed Americans the true nature of the man. I don’t know much about Winters other than what was portrayed by Ambrose and actor Damien Lewis, but there can be no doubt that he was a effective leader.
To Col. Winters, I salute you sir.
