A great loss

Amongst all the media attention on the shooting in Arizona, it has not been widely reported that Major Dick Winters, who became famous thanks to the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers passed away yesterday.  As a nation, we are a little bit poorer and a little bit smaller today with his loss, as it is no less a tragedy when an actual hero dies.  While Major Winters may not have considered himself a hero, preferring to say that he served with a company of heroes, he was.

Rest in peace.  As a nation, we are forever in the debt of men like you.
