Pearl Harbor Day Today! Virgil Westdale, Remembers Returning Home From WWII
You know, I happen to be one of those people who loves to sit around talking to senior citizens. I just think you can learn so much from them. They enjoy sharing their life stories, lessons they have learned along the way and past memories.
When I was broadcasting in the lobby of the Huntington Bank during ArtPrize this past year, Virgil Westdale paid me a visit. He was admiring a painting that showed New York City, the Statue of Liberty, and the Twin Towers when they were still standing. He began to reminisce about what it was like for him to return to New York City’s harbor, after WWII had ended and what it was like seeing the Statue Of Liberty for the first time after the war.
