Band of Brothers: Major Dick Winters in Aldbourne, England

In WWII, Major Dick Winters and Easy Company arrived in Aldbourne, England – September of 1943…8 months before the Normandy landing. It was during a moment of reflection that Winters met the Barnes family as they mourned the loss of their son to the War. The chance meeting grew in to a close friendship and change Major Winters forever…so much so that he stated in his memoirs that it was “the most formative and developmental time in his career”.
