RIP - Major Dick Winters

Maj. Dick Winters of Easy Company
Major Richard "Dick" Winters, who commanded the 101st Airborne, Easy Company and was the inspiration for Band of Brothers, passed away last week at the age of 92. He was, until the very end, an inspirational leader to his men.

The obituary for Major Winters is available here.

As a writer, I'm glad that there are people like Major Winters to provide me with endless inspiration.

As an American, I'm simply glad that there are soldiers like him to stand on guard for us.
