Not sure what to say?

Although i only know him through the series band of brothers he muast have been a great man. I served 9 years in the military through the gulf wars and iraq wars. I know what it is like to become unusually close to strangers through serving. It is a strange thing how close you do become. Every time i watch the series "which is a lot " i find myself tearing up with them and how emotional they get so many years later. God bless you and your family.

No greater man to serve under or with. Wish I could have been one of them. RIP Sir.

You were a great and respected man.Thank you for my freedom.

He was my AIRBORNE BROTHER. A true hero indeed and I don't use that word many times. REST IN PEACE ny brother

I don't know what to say except that truly great men don't usually see themselves as such. From what little I've learned about Richard Winters he belongs in this class of men. If not for men like these where would me be? Jeff Epsaro, Eau Claire WI
