Band of Brothers
With World War II-era military planes darting overhead and Normandy’s Utah Beach visible in the distance, a bronze statue emerged from beneath a camouflage parachute, in tribute to a man whose quiet leadership was chronicled in the book and television series “Band of Brothers.”
Richard “Dick” Winters, the Easy Company commander whose World War II exploits were made famous by the book and television miniseries “Band of Brothers,” died last week in central Pennsylvania. He was 92.
This might be hard to believe, but World War Two veterans Bill Guarnere and Edward “Babe” Heffron generally don’t like Veterans Day. You see for them, it can be a lot of work.
