For Memorial Day of 2012, the PBS outlet for the Blue Ridge region showed “Bedford: The Town They Left Behind” during Pledge Week. They asked me to come to Roanoke and help out with the pledge breaks. It was a real pleasure to work with everyone at the station. The whole experience was made bittersweet by the fact that Bob Slaughter, a true American hero and someone who inspired everyone on our production team, had passed away the week prior. You can watch my interviews with Blue Ridge PBS executive producer Angela Hatcher at these links:
Also, if you have an interest in World War II, the D-Day invasion, or American heroes, I hope you’ll read Bob Slaughter’s terrific autobiography.
