Dick Winters, the hero who led the 506th regiment of the 101st Airborn Division during World War II, and who was commemorated for his service in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers," died Jan. 2 at the age of 92.
A memorial service, headed up by retired Col. Cole C. Kingseed, who co-authored Winters’ autobiography, “Beyond Band of Brothers: The War Memoirs of Maj. Dick Winters,” will be scheduled.
Winters also had a book written after him, "Band of Brothers," by Stephen Ambrose.
Mr. Winters was a hero indeed, and to commemorate his courage and bravery during the Second World War, Design Toscano made Winters the first recipient of our Freedom's Pride American Eagle Wall Sculpture.
Toscano's Design Team was touched by Mr. Winter's service to our country and, as the sculpture was being finished, Toscano's design team felt that it would be appropriate to gift the first version to Mr. Winters, a true American Hero.
Mr. Winters and his wife thanked Toscano and placed it in his den flanked by two portraits of Mr Winters during World War II.
To support the Toscano team, browse through our collection of garden statuary, patriotic pieces, religious outdoor statues and more, like the piece hung in the late hero's home.
The Toscano family's thoughts and prayers go out to the Winters family.
