    Default Medal of Honor for Major Richard D. Winters

    Medal of Honor for Major Richard D. Winters

    To: Secretary of the Army

    Major Richard D. Winters, of Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division, 506th Regiment, is being made to wait for his Medal of Honor. Major Winters will never say that he deserves it, but the men who fought for him are doing so for him. Your office seems to be our only obstacle in getting Major Winters has Medal of Honor. We ask you, sir, why?

    a) it is an Internet poll. These are either ignored, or used to harvest e-mail addresses for spam purposes. Or both.

    b) if it wasn't for a television dramatisation, this guy would have been unheard of. I find it rather tasteless that a petition should be made to nominate someone for one of the highest awards the US military can bestow on anybody on the basis of the publicity he received through a dramatisation of his actions on the television.

    c) civilians have no right to nominate people for awards in this way. Well-meaning though they may be, who do these people think they are? If he wasn't deemed deserving of one at the time, why does he deserve one now? But... his story was... dramatised on TV... and... and... he was a hero... and... etc etc etc...

    d) it is probably a WAH anyway, or at least I'm hoping it is.

    I'm in complete and absolute agreement with Stoat here. If he deserved the MoH he would have been awarded it.

    You cannot change the values that defined an award 60 years ago just because you feel like it.

    Can any of you who have signed please give a reason for doing so other than Band of Brothers was a good drama?

    Without Band of Brothers, Major Richard D. Winters would be only a name in a history book (amongst thousands names) for me.

    @Man of Stoat
    a)Agree. But personally I don't care. Or more, maybe it serves to a sociologycal purpose.

    b)Agree partially (see above comments on Firefly). I'd comment that anyway, all nominations are made based on publicity (!!!!) Think about medals awarded for real. If the mates wouldn't talk about bravery, courage, situations, etc, and based on this wouldn't be opened an investigation about, there won't be any medal.

    c)I voted with my heart not with my head. I felt that I have to sign.
    On
    who do these people think they are?
    I want to remeber you that throughout the history these kind of actions had changed governments, societies and more important - conceptions.

    Finally I want to say that I am not interested if the major will receive (rather impossible) the MoH, I was interested to express my feelings.

    What about all the others who were equally, or more brave and accomplished who didn't have a TV miniseries made about them?

    As I said, this major would be only a name in a history book (amongst thousands names) for me, without the miniseries.

    If somebody will decide to make a movie or to read a novel (both based on true stories!! - please note) about another "name" from those thousands (or millions) and his work will tell something to me, I'll vote that without any hesitation because I learned about that name. He will be no more a name but a person.

    The others, maybe more brave, will remain only names without their actions revealed even in a movie. Sad but true.

    IMHO all men that have distinguised themselves in combat in the biggest and blodiest war this planet has ever seen, deserve the highesst decoration their country can award.
    Also, since the men that fought with him agree about this decoration who are we to say that he doesn't?

    Edited off-topic: If "Bridge over the river Kwai" wouldn't have been written, what you would felt about (rather than improving your knowledges reading few phrases in a history book)?


    2nd edit: If my posts seems not fully understandable, I apologise. I will study English Grammar more intense

    That film bears very little resemblance to reality, particularly in the portrayal of the British officers.
