Richard D. Winters Leadership Monument Reviews & Ratings
Nice site. A statue in honour of Richard Winters. Who most will know from the Band of Brothers tv show. You will pass this on your way to Utah Beach. Worth a stop just to respect what this man has done.
This monument in honor of Major Richard D. Winters is just outside of the village of Ste. Marie du Mont and is close to the site (Brecourt Manor) of his heroic action of disabling German artillery guns pointing at the Utah Beaches. These photos are of the ceremony held on June 6, 2019 commemorating the new monument. Representives from the US military and French officials attended the ceremony. It's a great honor to a great man. The monument's location has limited parking.
Excellent, WWII drop zones directly behind the monument.
A beautiful piece of tribute for Richard Winters. Easy to spot from the road.
Lt./Cpt./Maj. Winters war memorial. Great for visits and to pay your respects. Rest easy Major.
