Major winters, sadly passed away just recently. He was a true leader, no doubt about it. He lived from January 21, 1918 – January 2, 2011. He commanded Company “E”, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, during World War II. I know about him because of the non-fiction HBO series Band Of Brothers. I chose him as a leader because he was technically the leader of Company E. Winters once quoted ”I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, ‘Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?’ Grandpa said ‘No… but I served in a company of heroes.” I’ll post a link of Winters here, please pay some respect and read about him. Maybe look up band of brothers Richard Winters on YouTube to see a few clips of this veteran. It’s depressing, because a lot of the veterans are passing away, I know I don’t personally know them but, it’s still sad to me how I’ve watched the show so much and then finding out that there gone. I found out he died because my friend told me, and m friend found out because of a Facebook group, that’s sad if you think about it. I once saw a quote on that group that said; “Its saddening that most people took less than two hours to hear about Micheal Jackson’s death, when it took some people 8 days to learn of the death of a true hero, Rest In Peace Major, you deserve it.” This is the most true quote I’ve ever seen. He was a leader in world war 2, and is a leader in our hearts. Rest In Peace, you’ve been through enough, I wish the best for your family.
