Excellent Tribute to an Awesome Soldier

In the spirit of my current class, Writing about World War II, I thought I would pass along the following announcement. Early this year, Maj. Dick Winters of the 101st AB died at age 92, I think he was. His story and that of Easy Company was depicted in the Spielberg/Hanks/Ambrose collaboration Band of Brothers. We’ll be watching parts of the series later in the semester.

Well, the cast of Band of Brothers is coming together again to raise money for a monument to Winters in Normandy. They are going to jump out of planes, and donations go toward sponsoring parachutes. If you don’t donate, I presume the cast of Band of Brothers splatters.

I great, creative, and appropriate fundraiser, I thought. Will they remember to yell, “Curahee!” I wonder?
