Home Box Office (HBO) has made a tax-deductible donation to the Richard Winters Leadership Project. HBO becomes the first corporate entity to do so. HBO recently aired the 10-part series The Pacific and in 2001, debuted the Emmy Award-winning series Band of Brothers, which focused on Major Winters and the Men of Easy Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne and their fight to liberate Europe in WWII.
“I thank HBO for getting the ball rolling on this important project,” said Tim Gray, President of Tim Gray Media. “Major Winters and the Men of Easy have a special relationship with HBO and they are very appreciative that HBO made the initial donation to the monument and film project, recognizing the leader of Easy Company, Major Dick Winters and all those who led the way on June 6, 1944 (D-Day).”
