Seems like I'm only reporting deaths here lately, but I just learned that Major Richard Winters has apparently passed away.
If that doesn't mean anything to you... watch Band of Brothers.

I mean... I certainly don't think all soldiers are heroes. Far from it. Nor am I American, so it has nothing to do with patriotic hero worship.
But he was a hero. A real hero. A great leader and a man of honor. I know, it's an absurd concept to idolize someone who took lives and was good at it, but... yeah.



Rest in peace, Major.
