A Filmed "Oral History" ~ Sinese

This link actually came to my attention in an email. It is a short, heartwarming, wonderful film that I want to make sure you are aware of, so you too can enjoy. A film that will go down in history! Gary Sinese has made this all happen. Do you know who he is? Well, by throwing the name out to me, I didn't have a clue, but, after seeing this film, I found I knew who he was all along! Kudos to Gary and his uncle! Sleeping dog TV also did an awesome job filming this.

I have no connection to the filming company or any person involved in this great film. I just enjoyed and wanted to share. We should all have such a wonderful "Oral History" to share.

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  2. Thank you for sharing this Cheryl! Gary Sinise has always been one of my favorite actors, and to see this side of him just made me like him even more. Yes, a bit of a tear-jerker, but happy tears :)

  3. What a great film - my grandfather would have loved to have seen this story. He was very proud of his service at Warton Air Base in England and I remember he liked to watch the sky for those planes.

    Thanks for sharing this--so glad I dropped by. My uncle was also a navigator on a B-17! I had the thrill of flying in one myself in 2009 -- sitting up in the plexiglass nose like my uncle -- and Gary Sinese's uncle had -except I didn't have to see flak coming at me so thick "it looked like you could walk on it," per a description. I have 240 letters from WWII -- and hope to create a blog about them some day. Liberty Belle, the B-17 i flew in, makes stops around the country for people to fly in them. Google it--if it ever appeals to you!

  6. Cheryl,
    Thanks for sharing this. It was a wonderful tribute. Maybe it's because I'm already very emotional these days but I was bawling at the end.
