In this one-hour Milwaukee Public Television documentary, host Mark Siegrist travels with nineteen World War II veterans from around Wisconsin who returned to Pearl Harbor in June of 2012 to capture their memories, stories, thoughts and feelings about the event that catapulted the United States into World War II. For many of the veterans, this is the first time talking about those experiences.

Traveling with guardians as part of the Old Glory Honor Flight, the nineteen veterans will visit the USS Arizona Memorial, the Submarine Base, and other locations of historical importance.

A discussion follows with the documentary's host, Mark Siegrist, and the President of the Board of Directors for the nonprofit organization, Old Glory Honor Flight, Inc., Drew MacDonald.
