A Tribute to Major Dick WintersThe Veterans Site
Major Dick Winters, the inspiration behind the ‘Band of Brothers’ series has recently passed away. He was 92 years old.
On D-Day, Major Winters led an attack on a German gun battery, destroying the weapons firing at the American troops on Normandy’s Utah Beach. He and his company liberated a Nazi concentration camp and later captured Hitler’s mountaintop retreat. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the second-highest award for valor.
Major Winters’ heroic service is more than an inspiration for a TV series, its an inspiration for all of us to do even more in our daily lives for our country, family and neighbors. God Bless you Major Winters.
