        WWII Prairie Memories | Diverse Experiences

        Listen to stories about WWII, as recounted by sailor John Beston, army nurse Marcy Korda, RCAF pilot Leonard Jorgenson, navy ship fitter James Fritz, army sergeant Earl Roesler, and RCAF mechanic Roy Empson, in this episode of WWII Prairie Memories.

        World War II veterans are extraordinary — their bravery inspires us and their sacrifices secured our freedoms. WWII Prairie Memories is a collection of veteran voices as well as a piece of history that communicates the personal challenges and spiritual experience that define this generation of heroes. The episodes are compilations of selected veteran narratives recorded at Veterans Bonanzaville in 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.
