Four years ago today, one of America’s finest, Major Richard “Dick” Winters, left us…and left a legacy which inspires and will continue to inspire future generations.
In his twilight years, Major Winters lived in Hershey, PA, and generously supported the Hershey-Derry Township Historical Society with the gift of his military memorabilia and collection of photos, books, citations and personal effects.
The Society endeavors to honor Winters’ memory with a permanent exhibit of this collection in the Winters’ Den, where visitors will find the replicated home office of one of their beloved WWII heroes.
Additionally, the Society offers an annual tour “In the Footsteps of Major Dick Winters” which traces the route of Easy Company from Normandy, through Holland, the foxholes of Foy and Bastogne, and ends in the Bavarian Alps at the Eagle’s Nest, which was the pinnacle of Easy Company’s WWII service.
In the Winters Den, Terry Hartzell, an avid WWII enthusiast, shares remarks about his September 2014 tour experience… the “trip of a lifetime” which follows in the footsteps of Major Dick Winters. Tour registration for the 2015 Tour is now open. 2015 WWII Band of Brothers Tour
