I spent the week in D C being interviewed for a documentary
Spent 4 days being interviewed and filmed. I'll share pics when get over the jet lag. We started by evening and morning interviews. I had already shown my DD 214 and many pics, 4 of my officers had been interviewed and filmed and they verified the things I had seen and done. None of them were interviewed for onger than a half day, all were West Point Grads. All were folks I had much respect for.
The second day went to Arlington where I was filmed moving from the grave of a close friend to the Kennedy grave and memorial. the 5 person film crew was assisted by the Cemetary personnel in setting up and handling the crowds. People there watching were amazing as they were told that one of the 88 American soldiers who had faced in excess of 1500 Russians for 16 hours during the closest direct American Russian confrontation in 1961 was there. The Germans did take one, two, three, from every angle they could and people applauded me each time. We are talking hundreds of people helping me out. When 5 hours of filming was done in one day the PAO asked me if I would stay and talk to tourists about the incident. I said yes and 5 bus loads of people showed up. I spoke to all, people from many different lands mixed with Americans from every where.
The next day in the National Archives building, all day, filming me watching and commenting of original film from the event.
The last day in a studio with a narrator going over each incident in very detailed and graphic explanation.
