(00:00) Captain Henry Waskow was beloved by his men in WWII Italy. So when famous journalist Ernie Pyle saw the touching tributes to Waskow, he wrote a column that affects America today. Tom Hanks didn’t give a speech in 2000 at the dedication of the WWII monument. He simply read Ernie Pyle’s article and sat down. Famous movie directors Frank Capra and John Huston captured the battle in which Waskow died and created Academy Award-winning movies starring Robert Mitchum and Burgess Meredith. This is an interesting conversation about a fascinating book.
