Thank you, Major Winters.

This website has moved to a new permanent address:

www.whenlionsroared.com

I look forward to seeing you there.



From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother


William Shakespeare
Henry V - Act IV Scene III


 Major Richard Winters (2004)


As you may know by now, Dick Winters lost his battle with Parkinson's on January 2, 2011. He was laid to rest during a private ceremony on the 8th and is buried in Ephrata, Pennsylvania next to his parents.


His tombstone reads:

Richard D. Winters WWII 101st Airborne





 
I have no more words.

Very sad to read that Major Winters has past.
I'm sure he will be missed very much.

Onno.
