This blog is about the world of gaming miniatures, as seen from my perspective. I've been collecting and painting for over 30 years now, and while my primary focus is miniatures for D&D, I also enjoy many other games that use minis, so we'll be covering those as well. Thanks for stopping by!

He served in a company of heroes...

Richard D. Winters, MAJ, USA (Ret.) passed away on January 2nd. Like a lot of veterans of his generation, he seemed very humble and genuine. He was best known from his wartime actions chronicled in both the print and cinematic version of Band of Brothers.

It would seem that some folks have been trying to get the President to award the CMOH to Major Winters for his actions at Brecourt Manor during the Normandy invasion.

According to Wikipedia, there are 36 living members of Easy Company.
