Memorial Day is about more than mattress sales and barbecues, much more. We do our best to honor the memory of the service men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country with this week's guests.
We speak with World War II veterans Roscoe Mitchell and Art Shipe. Roscoe was a nose gunner and bomb toggler in a B-17 with the 8th Air Force in Europe. Art was a turret gunner in a Grumman TBM Avenger that flew off the air craft carrier Bunker Hill in the Pacific.
They share some of their experiences in the war and relate their feeling that they are not heroes, but rather, the real heroes didn't make it home.
World War II veterans are dying at a rate of 1000 per day. Make sure you thank one this Memorial Day weekend.
