Bill Forehand, Joan Fox, James Wilson, Pete Sante, Betty Lloyd, Kernan Chaisson, Jean Surgi (for husband Bill Surgi), Murray Ravitch, and Stacie Sullivan were among those interviewed in this Veterans Day Tribute. The team at Rockville 11, in partnership with the Rockville Senior Commission , interviewed these local veterans (or their spouses) of World War II and the war in Iraq to make this beautiful documentary of their experiences and thoughts. With stories of escaping a carrier in the Pacific with only a helmet for flotation, clearing moose from airstrips, the origins of the military salute, defense by frying pan and more, this documentary is well worth a listen. Thanks, R11 and RSCC, for making it.
