"Although I grew up listening to my Dad's experiences in the war, the very process of the "formal" television interview opened new dimensions to my relationship with him. It was several hours of the most touching, heart-rending and revealing moments I've ever shared with my Dad. I'll always treasure the time together we had on this project." -Sue Nass, Producer/Writer
