Heroes  
I really, really admire the men of Easy Company and I consider them my heroes. They are my heroes for showing me what real human relationships consist of. Through them I have learned so much and seen so much that I will never forget. I just wish I could one day meet them and tell them to their faces what they mean to me. I would probably cry if I ever did. The emotional attachments I have to these men are strong and strangely sincere since I have never actually known them in person. I would cry because of all the things they lost along the way. Because of all the hurt they have felt. But mostly I would cry because my heroes actually stood in front of me; flesh and blood, not paper and fiction.

If I could meet just one man in Easy Company, I would like to meet Dick Winters. He is the most amazing man I have ever had the pleasure to get to know (through all the various means of modern society). That will not be possible any more. I sincerely regret that I never wrote him that letter telling him what he means to me, what he symbolises.

Rest in peace, Major, and say hello to your men on the other side.
