A true hero has passed away...

Major Richard Winters, rest in peace. He surely fought so the rest of could enjoy peace.

Sad day indeed, there aren't many of the greatest generation
left to us.

Great man, Great generation. It seems the world these days has lost sight of that generations sacrifice and the incredible debt we owe them. They saved us from an evil force that would have changed the world as we know it today. God bless Maj. Winters and all WWII vets!!

+1 - our families, our friends and our way of life. Something we seem to easily forget these days.

Sad day when you lose a hero such as Richard Winters. Our country is here today because of him and those he fought with.
