Tom Hanks attended Memorial Service for Maj. Dick Winters
March 20, 2011
Major Dick Winters, the leader of Easy Company, passed away last January. Yesterday afternoon, a memorial service celebrating his life was held at the Hershey Theatre, in Pennsylvania. Though Tom Hanks was among the invitees, his attendance was a surprise for some.
After the memorial service, Tom Hanks was interviewed by News 8's Susan Shapiro. Joe Hermitt from The Patriot News was there too. You can click on each image to watch the respective video.
We've also added a few photos, made by Joe Hermitt for The Patriot News, to the gallery.
You can read two articles in our press archive, in which we learn that Tom Hanks never referred to Dick Winters as anything less than “Major” in all of their dealings.
Pennsylvania Cable Network will show the service on PCN at 8:30 p.m. Monday, March 21, at 10:30 p.m. Thursday, March 24, and at 9:30 a.m. Friday, March 25.
