One day my grandson said to me, 'grandpa were you a hero in the war?' And I said to him, 'no I'm not a hero, but I have served in a company full of them.'
— Richard Winters

Richard Davis "Dick" Winters was an officer in the United States Army and a decorated war veteran known for commanding Easy Company. Winters distinguished himself during Operation Market Garden where he and the 1st Platoon were able to capture the German forces that were attacking the American headquarters and the Battle of the Bulge where he and the 101st Airborne Division managed to fight back an overwhelming German force.

Winters was born in New Holland, Pennsylvania on 21 January 1918, and later moved to the nearby Lanchester. Once he became of age, Winters volunteered to join the army despite having no desire to join the war to avoid getting drafted at an inopportune time. Winters distinguished himself for the ability to lead others and was soon promoted to Major and given command of Easy Company. After the war, he continued to pursue his education before being deployed in the Korean War where he saw little action.

In 1952 Winters was honorably discharged. Upon returning to civilian life, Winters opened his own company selling chocolate byproducts from The Hershey Company to producers of animal feed. On 2 January 2011 Winters died due to Parkinson's disease.
