    The family and I went to Hershey Park, Pennsylvania, yesterday and heading into Hershey we crossed the Major Richard Winters Memorial Bridge.

    Unfortunately the new Richard Winters Leadership Memorial in Normandy is very similar i'm afraid , a fantastic idea to commemorate a great man but the actual statue itself leaves a lot to be desired !

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.

    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
