Remembering the Biggest Brother

There will be a public memorial service at the Hershey Theater this Saturday at 2 pm to honor Major Dick Winters.  Winters passed away on January 2nd and was buried on January 8th in a private service. The event begins at 2 pm and tickets are free, but you must call the Hershey Theater in advance.

WGAL TV will televise the event live at 2 pm.  They will also air a 2003 interview titled “Duty Bound: A Tribute to Dick Winters” prior to the service at 1:30 p.m. on March 19.

Winters and the members of Easy Company were immortalized in Stephen Ambrose's book, Band of Brothers, and the HBO miniseries of the same name.
