I appreciate pieces that honor those who went before us and performed sacrifices that helped to perserve our national heritage.
This piece not only honors such individuals but presents information on the history of our involvement in the first major World War in a very easy-to-listen-to manner. The information presented here (with the kind of mental imagery that only radio can evoke) is essential, in my opinion -- information that every American should know.
What I perhaps like most about this piece is the fact that the direct comments of the few surviving men who fought in WW1 are featured throughout the program. Narration -- who can top the American legend Walter Cronkite. This piece deserves a ten-star rating. Not only should every station carry this, but every American should want to listen to it. I have an interest in history and recognize the importance of this kind of material. I would ask the producers to see my private notes and to confer with me if you disagree with a humble suggestion you will find there.
