It was the unthinkable: to be commanded to leave a fallen soldier behind. Sunday Kim talks with Marine Captain Doug Chamberlain about his book, "Bury Him: A Memoir of the Vietnam War."

2019 was the 75th anniversary of the WWII Battles D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge. Ralph Peeters grew up in The Netherlands and developed a deep love for the American Soldiers of WWII who liberated Europe. Ralph’s grandfather, father and now Ralph adopted graves of our G.I.s to learn about these young men who died while fighting tyranny and evil and to make sure that their graves are honored and cared for. Kim had the honor of traveling with Ralph in 2016 when she, Ralph and the team from the Denver Police Activities League accompanied four D-Day Veterans to Normandy: Joe Scida, Frank DeVita, Conrad Lohoefer and Guy Whidden.

Listen to the show at America’s Veteran’s Stories.
