Major Richard "Dick" Winters , CO of Easy Company , 506th Reg 101st Airborne Division , US Army died on 2nd Jan but news has only been released in last day or so.The story of Major Winters and his men was told in "Band of Brothers". The word "hero" is overused , and from what I've read and seen of Major Winters when interviewed he would not have used it either. But he , and millions of men and women like him deserve that label in my opinion. We would be living in a very different world without them. I'll be raising a glass tonight in his memory and would invite others to do so. Respect.
