Easy Company's Wild Bill Guarnere and Edward "Babe" Hefron joined up with film maker Tim Gray and Baseball great Curt Schilling and are trying to raise enough money to build a statue of their commanding officer, Major Dick Winters, at Utah Beach in Normandy. It was there that E Company, under Winters’ leadership (as a Lieutenant), parachuted behind German lines and captured four big German guns above the beach, saving many lives. That short brutal fight was taught as a classic infantry engagement at West Point and in ROTC classrooms (and in my own ROTC class in 1988).
Lots of media coverage on this:
