Athens, Ala. – Amanda Winter was only three and a half years old when her Marine father, Major W.E. Winter, was killed during an attack in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983. Through the years, Amanda and her family has kept the legacy of her father alive. As a Gold Star Family, Amanda and the Winter family have been supporters of those who have lost their lives while serving our country. Some day, Amanda hopes to write a book to serve as an encouragement to other families. I hope that she is able to do that. You can listen to my conversation with Amanda below.
