Adrian Olson : Hello All, Mike Ranney was my grandfather. I am the grandson being referenced in this clip.

Daniel Hesse : Gets me every damn time

Terminathan97 : They truly were the greatest generation, weren't they.

Harrison : How can someone dislike this? Really?

J J Fitzpatrick : Dick Winters, and those who served alongside him did not serve the U.S. in WW2.  They served for the benefit of all mankind.

CeedBeats : I never got to know my second grandpa. My father always told me, that war destroyed his father. He always felt, that there is something inside his father, that tortured him. He never talked about war, i just know that his best friend died right beside of him. Movies like this help me to  imagine what those men had to deal with. He died many years before I was born, even my mother did never know him. He never got to know one of his grandchildren. My grandpa was german. Like me. Anyway for me he is a hero.

AnimalMotherV2 : I was grocery shopping the other day, and saw a man wearing a WW2 veteran hat. I stopped him and thanked him for his service. I'm sure he gets that all the time but I felt compelled to talk with him, as I have so much respect for all military veterans, but especially those who served in WW2

William Sawyer : No matter what I do with my life. No matter what I accomplish. I always know I will be nothing compared to any of these men. Truly the greatest generation.

SharpWalkers : Get's me every time

Daniel Keerer : Makes me a sobbing idiot everytime.

Private Joker : I highly disagree with people who say things like "German weren't horoes" or "They are horrible people". This is never and never was true, the man who created the V2 Rockets deffected to the allies and created the capsules for the bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. There are heroes in every war on both sides no matter who wins and who loses. I also strongly disagree with people who say that they are horrible people, They weren't horrible people. There was a lot of hardline Nazi's who were not good but most people were doing a job they were told to do for the reason if they didnt they would face the same fate as the Jewish people in concentration camps. Now dont get me wrong I am not saying what hitler did was good or alright I am just stating try to look at it through the eyes of the people there, If you were faced with the possibility of death for not doing something would you choose to live or die. you may say "I would choose death" from the safety of your computer chair but I can say 90% of people on here wouldnt.

skittlesnbeer : Look at his expression after he states the question Mike R's grandson asked....It is clear, more than ever before, that he considers every one of his men heroes...And is humbled by the fact that "Grandpa said no"....He was a hell of a guy..As were the rest of them.

BiskitznGravy : You command in the lords army now. This piece is so powerful.

Alex R : I still get chills every time I watch this. RIP Maj. Winters

Bob Canapary : If only we had men like that leading us today

Mario Kooima : My deepest respect is for you sir,all it takes is a few good men,like you

Torrident : This always gets me tears

DaSnipy : So right he is .. He is not a hero .. he is a LEGEND .. A Place Above Heroes ..

Digital : Gets me every damn time.

Ian Graham : My grandfather passed away recently, he was a crewman on Lancaster bombers. Before he died, he gave me his flight wings, I will forever cherish them. When he gave them to me he recited the poem, “high flight”.

kfk3000 : right in the feels

Stan de bot : A man fires a rifle for many years And he goes to war And after war he turns the rifle in at the armory And he believes he's finished with the rifle But no matter what else he might do with his hands love a woman build a house change his son's diaper His hands still remember the rifle rest in peace brother CURRAHEE 🇺🇸

Einhildur : It's so hard not to cry when watching this.

m0rdeczka : Full respect. But someone needs to fix the subtitles - they go "i served in the company of girls" ...

Ryan Moore : Everytime. This scene gets me Everytime.

Alex R : This video and this quote, even almost 70 years after the war, makes me tear up, because it makes me damn proud to be an American! RIP Sgt. Winters, and thank you.

Xavier Israel : I... I didn't ask for these feels. But i'm glad I got them. God bless America, and long live the Republic.

arbiter569 : I saw Band of Brothers when I was about 8. This man and his men were my hero. My father tried so hard to get me a meeting with this man and unfortunately he was already sick. The Winters sent me a letter. I was 15 when he passed, and it was a very sad day for me. He served with a company of heroes. I will never forget this man.

Pevsfreedom : I watched Band of Brothers right after I got out of basic training and tech school. I had seen it before as a child and didn't understand it as much. I watched this though and this part made me cry for over an hour, my wife staring at me like I had lost it. IDK. Something struck a chord.

Suleman Khan : The passing of Senator McCain does effectively highlight that American greatness was built by a selfless breed.

zXAgent47Xz : Rest In Peace Major Winters. Currahee one final time.

Thousand_Cuts : Weird how every time that i watch this there happens to be a bowl of freshly cut onions under my face.

MInh Ha : I am happy to see there are not that many American Soldier HATERS in this comment section. God bless.

RDKRL : My grandpa (Czech) served in RAF and died there. I really appreciate what these people did, so we can have our happy lives nowadays.

BabyBoomerChannel : This is why these men were so special...even to the end - they cared more about their brothers than themselves.

Rikard Fjellhaug : oh man. Putting on the english auto-texting kills me. its so funny. "No but I served in a company of girls"

Chris M : Great men.

Kevin Kelly : I wish that Mike Ranney was attributed to this amazingly powerful quote. He's the one who said it, not Dick Winters.

MilkToast : This sends a chill down my spin and I choke up every time.

Mohd Rusdi Roslin : R.I.P Major, eventhough I never met u but I do hear gallant stories and charisma that u showed in Band of Brothers. U r a hero.

madgameradam : God bless our veterans past present and future! 🇺🇸
