Captain Winters was an American commander who participated in Operation Deliverance on July 11th, 1951.
In the early hours of the operation, Winters was able to avoid the fate of much of his other subordinates during the landings. With American forces badly mauled and disorganized, Winters took tactical command of all forces in York and determined that if captured, the nearby bus depot in southeast York would serve as an effective staging area for his forces.
Through this, he began rallying the scattered elements of the regiment, leading Baker Company to hold the entrance to the bus depot as remaining American forces began arriving at the gathering point. Leading his troops in a desperate tactical offensive, Winters was able to coordinate his troops effectively to eliminate the entrenched Chimeran forces. Additionally, the arrival of Sergeant Nathan Hale, the sole survivor of Arrow Company helped turn the tide of the offensive in favor of the Americans.
Despite their bravery and success, the Rangers' efforts were ultimately futile when Chimeran forces launched Spire missiles at the depot. This sudden attack caught the Americans off-guard, wiping out and infecting the remaining Rangers in York.
Winters' ultimate fate is unknown, however, considering that most infected Americans were taken to the Grimbsy conversion center, it was likely that he was converted into a Chimeran variant.
- Winters can be unlocked as a multiplayer skin in R:FOM by reaching level 49 (Major General) but unfortunately the player can't edit the skin.
- Captain Winters could be named after Captain Richard D. Winters, a heroic officer in WWII who was featured in the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers. In 2016 Lead Character Designer Damon Iannuzzi confirmed they were the same person. 
- When Hale first reaches the depot Winters has a Fareye, but right before the spire attack he has a carbine, although this maybe because he switched to a carbine before he came down or got it off another soldier.
- There is a glitch in the last level of York, if during the cutscene you don't jump out of the building where Captain Winters and two fellow soldiers, turn around and look at Winters and you'll realize that his Fareye is half way through his face.
