A Simple, Well-Told Story
Sometimes a straight delivery of facts is all you need to let audiences experience the joy of a homecoming. St. Louis TV station KETC has a six-minute feature on Lavern Parker, a Missouri resident who fought in Italy with the 91st Infantry Division. He talks movingly about returning home to his family once the War ended. Note the camera zooming in on Parker's B&W portrait as a young soldier than dissolving into video of him, 91 in 2007, hugging one of his great-grandchildren today.
