During the interview segment of the miniseries Band of Brothers, Winters quoted a passage from a letter he received from Sergeant Mike Ranney, "I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said 'No… but I served in a company of heroes…'"
What a wonderful way to put it. That quote resonated with me since viewing Band of Brothers for the first time.
Another member of the greatest generation lost to us. Rest in peace.
saw that yesterday on facebook. i've seen the series, but never read the book. my uncle has and said it is quite amazing. i don't particularly enjoy reading, but i will take the plunge someday and enjoy this one. R.I.P. "Cpt. Sobel, we salute the rank, not the man."
