Hero. A term that is used far too often for people that are no way deserving of the title. This is not the case of Quentin C. Aanenson, a World War 2 fighter pilot and front line ground troop. A tried and true leader of men, through conditions and perils that hardly anyone alive today can imagine. A great that stands out from the 'Greatest Generation'.
He wanted to share his story, and I'm glad he did. He wrote, produced, and narrated a film about his time fighting for the Allies. This film was first shown in 1993, widely shown in 1994 on PBS, and I'm sad to say that I just learned of it. Better late than never, so they say.
DVDs were available up until a few years ago, but we have not been able to track one down. So here is the film, in 2 parts, graciously hosted by who we assume to be a 100% true and proud American.
Enjoy. And never forget what was done for us.
