    That dude is my hero. If you haven't read Band of Brothers it is a great book and well worth the time. Dick Winters was a no B.S. type of guy. I felt like I knew him.

    RIP and my God bless you and all your "Band of Brothers". Through the efforts of you and those like you, you saved my father from becoming a German soldier at the age of 13 from the Hitler Youth corps. You also saved my mother who lived south of Amsterdam. I am here because of you and those like you. Again may God bless you and all who served.

    You are the reason I became a 101st ABN soldier.

    A sad day. I'd be happy to be half the man he was.

    Godspeed Major Winters. I had the honor to meet Major Winters a few years ago. Unforunately it was at the funeral of another fallen hero, Lt Col. Jack Murphy, a B-17 pilot and POW. There is a reason they deserve respect and to be called the greatest generation.
