    Not sure if anyone has posted this yet but one of America's WWII hero's passed away Jan 2, 2011 just 16 days shy of his 93rd birthday. Major Dick Winters 101st Airborne commander, Easy Company. From the book and movie Band of Brothers. Did not see much on the news about this. Thought it was worth mentioning to all that knew of him. If you have not read the book or seen the mini series I highly recommend it.

    The online forums and comments and webpages of other members of Easy company are all worth reading after you see the mini series.

    He was an American heroe and his life is remarkable. The story telling that went into the production of the series was remarkable also.

    Winters volunteered to go fight in the Pacific after the surrender of Germany. Amazing guy.

    Regards from Iowa
