Honoring the Memories of World War II Veterans

Nov 11, 2016

Seventy-five years ago, Americans across the country put their lives on hold, leaving their homes and risking their lives to fight a brutal war by land, sea and air.

Today is Veterans Day, and while we honor Veterans of all wars on this day, this hour we hear the stories of the men and women of World War II.

We talk with historian and bestselling author Craig Nelson about his new book all about Pearl Harbor.

Nelson tells us about the days leading up to the Japanese attack and the consequences after. We also speak with a Connecticut man who has spent more than two decades interviewing World War II veterans.

What do these stories mean to you on Veterans Day?
