    Default RIP Major Dick Winters

    Didn't see a thread started on this here, actually saw it over on the Megadeth forums. Was going to post this on the WWII forum but figured it needed it's own thread.

    Maj. Dick Winters, of Band of Brothers fame, passed away on January 2. Most of you here have probably seen the show/miniseries. He was laid to rest on Jan. 8. A real Hero.

    RIP.

    Definitely a great man who was an amazing leader. If you watch or read the comments made about Winters by the men who served with him and under him, that tells you everything that you need to know about the man.

    RIP Maj. Winters.

    This is truly sad. I read somewhere a couple of years ago that we were losing WWII veterans at the rate of like 1,000 a day now or something like that. R.I.P. Major Winters and all veterans, your service is appreciated.

    Their country called, and they answered. Those that survived came home and built up the greatest modern empire on Earth. They earned it.

    Every time one of these guys/gals dies, we lose another piece of whatever is left of our national character.

    RIP Major Winters. My God, I can't believe that horrible day has shown up.

    A recent study shows 92% of the teenage population likes rap music. If you are part of the 8% who listen to real music, put this as your sig.

    God speed Sir. What an exceptional human being.

    The importance of Major Winters story, to me, is that his story has become representative of millions of other men during World War Two, of all nationalities, whos own story will never be told and who suffered untold misery and under those conditions performed acts of incredible heroism.
