“It was my father’s film. So, it was in his basement until he passed away,” says retired Army Colonel Bill Kosco. Kosco’s father is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. When retired Captain George Kosco died in 1985 he left behind mementos from his time as a meteorologist and navigator in the Navy. “This is an album my father put together, files and photographs he obtained on board the USS Missouri.”

The film itself is very interesting. The comments beneath it by the vile sappers from the extreme right, trying to equate it with modern day scum politics, are sick and perverted. The greatest generation should not be denigrated by using it for political gain by either party of today. The achievements of those days stand on their own, in part due to Roosevelt and Truman, who the modern day sickos hate.

I found the film very moving. an example of being content to observe history, and record history without the sound-track. Very effective... thanks for sharing it!
