America lost a hero. Major Dick Winters passed away on Jan. 2 at age 92. He was a legendary World War II leader of the Easy Company, a paratrooper company that landed on Normandy, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, rescued people from the Dachau concentration camp and took Hitler's mountain retreat in Austria, the Eagle's Nest.
His WWII heroics was chronicled in the HBO series Band of Brothers, which is the Korean's favorite TV show of all time. He had such a man-crush on Major Winters that when Damian Lewis -- the actor who played Winters -- showed up in a new NBC show (which was really crappy,) the Korean followed the show just for the purpose of watching Major Winters. Alas.
