Veteran storytellers

Posted on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006.


Ryan Peavyhouse (above left) flew all the way from Atlanta for the day to have us record his grandfather’s storytelling. David Groy recounted many of his grandson’s favorite stories about serving in France during World War 2.

General Donald Scott (below left) asked his wife Betty to talk about what it was like for her to raise their boys whilst he was away fighting in Vietnam. William Taylor’s hopes to continue a military career were dashed when he contracted polio. He cherishes his memories of working in the military, on the Manhattan project in particular, but he also appreciates that the path he was forced to take allowed him to stay closer to his family.
