One Square Mile

The video in the post above goes with this post. But when I try to put them together, you can't view the video. So click on both, it won't kill you!

From today's Boston Globe - "One Square Mile

This is a short video highlighting Charlestown's contribution to the war effort during WWII.
Bill Durette of the Charlestown Historical Society does a great job pulling together stories, people and artifacts to keep this important history available. This is also a good time to direct you to Bill's essay on Veteran's Day/Armistice Day from last year.

When George Kenneally is speaking at 1:45 to 1:49 in the vid you can see a pic of my Uncle Danny over his right shoulder.

Tomorrow the Globe will run a companion piece.
