National Dick Winters is the Man Day

AKA D-Day

65 years ago on June 6, Forrest Gump, Good Will Hunting, the dude from Office Space, and a Ross from Friends were invading France and killing Krauts for our freedom.

So besides watching Band of Brothers on the history channel and maybe throwing in Saving Private Ryan on DVD, please go to http://www.majordickwinters.com/ and sign the petition to get Major Dick Winters the Congressional Medal of Honor for what he did on D-Day, specifically the assault on Brecourt Manor. He is all that is man for a quiet guy from Lancaster, PA.

If it wasn't for the heroic actions of these men during the real world version of Hoth, we wouldn't have a cool name for the star ship in the Mass Effect games.

EDIT:

    If Dick Winters was in Vietnam, that war would not have ended in a withdrawal, I'll tell you that.

    In the World wars centre at Duxford, I was reading the information about the D-Day landings and missions following it

    It was funny to see the operation names start off as obscure references to things like horse racecourses, to avoid suspicion and end up with names like "Operation fuck these Berlin fuckers up."
