    Gotta be boring and say Lt. Winters.

      Winters would have to be my pick..........he's the one who showed the guys organization and got them acquainted. If not for this, they would have surely had more trouble than they had.
      A close second would be "Buck"........cant remember his last name.

        Winters

        I agree with you both if Winters was not there they would most likely have been led to their deaths by (Fox Hole Norman). Winters showed bravery and comradeship even under intense fire. He led his men into D-day with few casualties.

                  Lt Winters

                  Would have to be Winters. Lead from the front.

                    Though I didn't really have a favorite (though Winters is the kind of guy you want to serve under), I'm a bit partial to Spiers. There was just something rediculously cool (and insane) about him running right through town... of course there was the prisoner incident, but war is war and 'things happen' all the time.

                      My favorite characters are Bill Guarnere, Babe Hefron and Ronald Speirs.

                      Guarnere and Hefron are guys that I actually have met and spoken to here in Philadelphia, PA. They are like their characters but better.

                      The actor that played Guarnere (Hughes) has visited Guarnere in South Philly at his residence (he has alot of airborne memories).

                      Speirs is somewhat a villian but good guy of the group.

                        As portrayed in the series I'd say Guarnere, but after seeing the real Winters on a History Channel show about the 101st I have to say he'd be the one. Talk about one cool customer. No brag just fact.

                        I also hold Sgt. (then Lt.) Lipton in high esteem. He really held the unit together in Bastogne under terrible conditions.

                          Lt. Buck Compton (The kind of officer I would be)

                          Captain Speirs (Fear factor, but all that BS probably didn't happen)

                          Technician Grade 4 George Lutz- In the books he was supposed to be really funny.

                          AHHH HELL I think they are all great in a certain way.

                            Speirs did some things in the war (talked to veterans from the 506) including taking over E-506. The killing of German prisoners seemed to be a rumor but no matter what, Easy Company kicked but in World War Two.

                            I heard that many people are trying to get the president to award Richard Winters the Medal of Honor. I hope that he receives it. It would be a great event and dedication to the men of Easy Company. AIRBORNE!!!

                              I liked...

                              ...Winters, Spiers, Malarkey, Sgt. Carwood Lipton (who received the battlefield commission), Guarnere, Lutz, Compton, Joe Toye, Bull Randleman and Lew Nixon.

                              I liked the situation when Winters fudged a patrol across the stream in order to avoid needless bloodshed just to pick up another prisoner who wouldn't talk because he didn't know anything.
