Two South Philly vets from the famed Band of Brothers are fighting for Normandy momument to Major Dick Winters and D-Day leadership

Two South Philly World War II veterans, William "Wild Bill" Guarnere and Edward "Babe" Heffron, of Band of Brothers fame, are now fighting to have a monument built for their former commander, Major Dick Winters (seen in the below photo), and the leadership of the American troops at Normandy on D-Day.

You can read Edward Colimore's piece on Wild Bill and Babe at The Philadelphia Inquirer via the below link:

Guarnere and Heffron tell their story of war and friendship in a book called Brothers in Battle, Best of Friends.
