Major Richard “Dick” Winters, 1918-2011


On D-Day, June 6, 1944, Winters and his troops from Easy Company, 506th regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, parachuted behind enemy lines to take on a German artillery nest on Utah Beach. His company fought through the Battle of the Bulge, the liberation of a death camp at Dachau and to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest at Berchtesgaden.

Why is this not bigger news? CNN has nothing, Drudge has nothing, and FOXNews has a tiny article. Disgusting.

Simple answers, Wyatt. He wasn't a member of congress, and he was Conservative appointed by a Bush.

Thankfully the doctors acknowledged the presence of the other victims, not just the Rep. Giffords. The doctors get it. The media does not...as usual.

God rest Mr. Winters, and all the rest of those that were murdered in this senseless act. May God give comfort to all those effected. And may he give courage to those still fighting.

In the meantime, there's a tall tree near Tucson, and alot of folks (including me) with rope just itching to serve up justice.

My apologies. Got a little mixed up. The world lost two heroes. Major Winters has obviously secured a special place in Heaven.

The Major would never call himself a hero, but he was just that in every sense of the word. Along with all the brave men and women who have served this country. Thank you for your service Major. I know your family and friends will miss you terribly.

Major Richard Winters death deserves more attention. A Warrior who dedicated his life to Peace should be remembered by a nation at war with itself.
God Speed Sir. All who cherish Freedom mourn your passing.

RIP Sir!

I agree this should have been a bigger story. This man made history. Made it happen. He helped the US ARMY the United States win the war. He was not only important to his family but important to me and I never really knew this man.
