‘Band of Brothers’ inspiration dies at age 92

January 10th, 2011 Posted in The SandGram v1.0

Major Richard “Dick” Winters who was the inspiration for the novel and HBO special series, “Band of Brothers” died last week in Hersey Pennsylvania.  He was 92 years young, a Veteran of WWII and an inspiration of what all Officers in the Military should aspire to be in their careers.  I loved the book Band of Brothers but the mini-series is still one of my all time favorite shows ever made.  I got to “know” Major Winters through the terrific acting in the show and I have to say that if I could be just 1/10th of the man he was, it would be enough to last a lifetime. 

Dick Winters, I know you are leading your men in Heaven and I hope that one day I have the honor of serving with you as we guard the pearled gates together.

Semper Fi and God’s Speed.
