KQED World: Thu, Nov 12, 2015 -- 5:00 AM

In 2004, the United States dedicated a long-awaited memorial to the 16 million men and women who served in the armed forces during World War II, the 400,000 who died in Europe and the Pacific and those who toiled in factories on the home front. This program recounts the touching and inspirational story of World War II veterans from Indiana who embarked on a cross-country trek to Washington, DC, to visit the memorial which honors their sacrifice. On the 12-hour bus ride, the veterans (most in their 80s and 90s) reminisce about their war experiences, sharing their emotional tales of struggle and survival.
