Comments: When newsman Aaron Elson went to a reunion of his late father’s WWII Tank Battalion he didn’t expect to embark on a 25-year oral history project.
He will share some amazing stories he has recorded in more than 600 hours with veterans, their wives, and kin.
Elson has authored several books, including "The Armored Fist," a very human look at the men of the 712th Tank Battalion with which his father served; and "A Mile in Their Shoes: Conversations With Veterans of World War II."
He also has produced a series of Oral History Audiobooks in the veterans' own voices, and has helped several veterans and a Holocaust survivor self-publish their memoirs.
Elson currently is an editor at the New Britain Herald, Bristol Press and the Newington Town Crier.
