13-year-old Jordan Brown, of Lebanon, raised close to $100,000 for a project honoring the late Major Dick Winters in Normandy, France by selling olive green wristbands displaying the leader of the Band of Brothers' famous motto "Hang Tough." The money went toward a statue in the likeness of Winters, in rememberance of the leadership of all junior U.S. officers on D-Day in 1944.
Today, Jordan was among the speakers at the unveiling of the statue near Utah Beach, the 68th anniversary of the allied invasion.
