Interviewing the Greatest Generation

First post in 3-1/2 months, yikes, what happened to me!

I’ve been busy is the short answer. The last few months have been great for Twin Miracles Editorial with a lot of fun projects and some fantastic experiences.

Chief among those has been my work for Discovery Living Communities, which began last February and culminated at the end of October with me getting the opportunity to talk to eight residents of these senior living communities who had amazing tales to tell. Over the course of a week-and-a-half, I talked to a survivor of the Holocaust, a former stand-up comedian who had worked with the likes of Jerry Lewis and Lucille Ball, a World War II Air Force gunner, a woman who served as a translator for the US Postal Service and wound up meeting royal dignitaries from all over the world, and most impressive, William F. Lee, of Plano, TX, who worked in the White House during JFK’s administration, had a few encounters with the first family, and stood on the Death Watch after the President was assassinated. Mr. Lee was engaging and informative, you can see an interview with him here on YouTube.

It was humbling to hear his story – which ranged from Korea to the White House to Vietnam. All of these great men and women had lived amazing lives, and it was wonderful to get to share a moment of that history.
