Have you seen the tv-series you will totally understand. Nice monument over Mj winters and his men. If you’re near by, don’t miss the monument of battle of brecour manor.

Major Winters resided in Lancaster County, PA (our home) and both my husband and son are huge fans of Band of Brothers. This memorial was meaningful to both of them. A quick stop on your way out of the Utah Beach area.

More and more memorials are popping up every year in this area and quite understandable. Job well done and not much to say really. Its a fine monument.

Winters did fight nearby, but the statue is probably more a reflection of the popularity of BOB. Still happy to stop and pay respect to a humble leader who was an inspirational hero.

On the drive from Utah Beach, it is easy to pull over and remember this leader who led his men in a difficult situation with a great deal of thought.

You drive by this memorial on the way to Utah Beach. If you have the time, it is one of many small memorials scattered throughout the Normandy region, and worth the stop.
