The men of Easy Company were there for D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge and the capture of Hitler's mountain retreat. They were led by the beloved and humble Dick Winters, who died Jan. 2 at 92. His unit of the 101st Airborne Division was the subject of Stephen Ambrose's best-selling book Band of Brothers and the 2001 HBO miniseries (produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks) of the same name.
