    Default Dick Winters, 'Band Of Brothers' Inspiration, Dies

    Dick Winters passed away. I don't usually admire military men, but his self-sacrifice and devotion to his men were really inspiring.

    Portraying Winters, actor Damian Lewis says, "If somehow I manage to get home again, I promised God and myself that I would find a quiet piece of land someplace and spend the rest of my life in peace."

    Winters found that quiet piece of land. He bought a farm outside Hershey, Pa., where he spent the rest of his life.

    If this man's nickname wasn't Chilly Dick, I am very disappointed in his friends.
