The Eagles Fly

Major Dick Winters, who led Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion, died  at 92.  He was buried yesterday. His portrayal in HBO’s “Band of Brothers” made him the public face of the World War 2 generation, and his death the symbol of their passing. Of their fame one commenter remarked that “when they first proposed a WWII Monument in DC my thought was ‘why?’ After all, the whole world is their monument.”
