Bad News

Unfortunately, my first post of 2011 is to report the passing of a true, military legend. Here is a link:

I hope you all can spare a moment of thought for Major "Dick" Winters, as well as the other Veterans who pass away daily. They're from a generation quite seperate from ours, and without them, who knows what shape the world would be in today.

I urge everybody to read "Band Of Brothers", as well as "Citizen Soldiers", and then watch the acclaimed miniseries, to see the man "in action". The interviews with Winters are an absolute must, in understanding the mind of a proven combat leader, as well as a caring, understanding human being, in an extraordinary situation.

May he Rest in Peace.
