Screaming Eagles

Particularly, I love to follow the events with respect to the Air Borne division.

Richard "Dick" Winters
The true leader of Easy

I remember from one of the conversations between one of the First Lt and CO Winters

Lt: “I believe the drop zone is too bloody and you will be surrounded by enemies”

CO Winter: “we are the airborne division; we are supposed to be surrounded”

CO Dick Winters was the first a paratrooper, then the platoon lead then became the First Srgt, and later First Lt and then became the CO of the entire battalion by the end of battle at Haguenau.

Winters joined the E Company (Easy Company) 101st Airborne, 506 PIR (parachute infantry regiment)
