Honoring the vets

Army Maj. Gen. James McConville addresses a crowd of World War II veterans and more than 200 attendees June 6, 2012, during a ceremony to unveil a statue near Utah Beach, France. McConville, together with other distinguished visitors and attendees, paid tribute to Army Maj. Richard “Dick” Winters, a former World War II commander of “E” Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. The memorial eulogizes Winter’s unwavering commitment to the soldiers he was assigned and the leadership young officers and noncommissioned officers showcased during battle in Europe. Winters and his company were made famous by the New York Times bestseller and same-titled television series “Band of Brothers” that documents the Airborne paratroopers’ time fighting in France, Holland and Germany. McConville is the commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Stephen J. Collier)
