Why We Didn't Hear About the Death of Dick Winters

I'm not unlike just about everyone who read Ambrose's books on WWII, or saw the mini-series Band of Brothers: Maj. Dick Winters is a hero in our eyes.  He was the longest-surviving officer of the 506th PIR, and died this past January at the age of 92.  I wrote about it here.

Almost no one heard about his death.  Here is a great article from the National Review on why.
