I don't know how I missed this in the news. I saw it on the sidebar at Redneck Reflections:

"Major Dick Winters, who died on January 2 aged 92, was one of the US Army’s most revered servicemen of the Second World War; his exploits were later chronicled in the book and television series Band of Brothers."

Click here to read the entire obituary at The Telegraph. The WWII generation is fast slipping away and Major Winters was one of the giants. Thanks to Stephen Ambrose for writing Band of Brothers and to HBO for producing it. We need heroes like Major Winters to hold up as examples to the young. I wonder if any of the schools even teach the kids about men like him? Probably not. It might make America and her people look good and we wouldn't want that.
