I just found out Major Dick Winters, leader of the famed “Band of Brothers” in World War II passed away January 2nd. He was, without a doubt, one of the true heroes of history. Though from everything I’ve read, he wouldn’t really want to be remembered that way.
A lot of people have read or seen Band of Brothers, but I would also highly recommend his personal memoir of the time period, Beyond Band of Brothers.
Winters was on a short list of people I would have loved to meet and photograph. The world has lost a truly great man.
