    A nice tribute to an exceptional man. YouTube - Tribute To Major Dick Winters


    Several year ago at the SOS, I had my copy of "Band of Brothers" autographed by four members of Easy Company. They opened the book to the page they usually signed and found Major Winter's autograph. They deferred and chose another page to sign. A sign of respect that his men still had for him.

    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.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
