World War II veterans are extraordinary – their bravery inspires us and their sacrifices secured the freedoms we treasure. WWII Prairie Memories is an important collection of veteran voices, a precious piece of history, that communicates the personal challenges and spiritual experiences that define this generation of heroes. All three episodes are compilations of selected veteran narratives recorded at these locations: Veterans Bonanzaville USA, West Fargo ND; ND Cowboy Hall of Fame, Medora ND; Prairie Public Studios, Fargo ND; Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center, Moorhead MN; and Morris Legion, Morris MB.
