MoCo To Honor Veterans With TV Marathon


Published:

Montgomery County will run a 13-hour marathon of interviews with World War II veterans this Sunday, Veterans Day, and again on Monday, Nov. 12 to honor those in the county who have served. The tribute will include extended interviews with 14 local vets of World War II and start off with the broadcast of a September ceremony honoring those veterans hosted by former Nightline anchor Ted Koppel. The marathon will start each day at 9:30 a.m. and continue to 10:30 p.m. Many of the veterans, including 97-year-old Dee Paris, are approaching 100, making documenting their stories all the more important. Paris, who was a tank commander in the Battle of the Bulge, sat down with a local college student. His interview will air at 10 p.m. on both nights. The program will be shown on County Cable Montgomery (Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon).
