My Father was interviewed by the Virginia War Memorial in October 2001.  After he died my brother Ernie took the interview and edited it down to an 11 minute segment that focused on his last mission, being shot down and hidden by the underground in

Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds,
yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.  ~Daniel Webster
