Dick Winters, RIP

Major Dick Winters, commander of “Easy Company” of the 2nd Battalion of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division during World War II, died January 2. He was 92.

In an interview for HBO’s Band of Brothers, Winters eschewed the notion that he was a hero. If he wasn’t, then there’s no such thing.
