    • Opening Narration: The battlefields of World War Two were thousands of miles from Walton's Mountain, but those times brought about many changes for my family on the home front. My brother, Jason, was training recruits at nearby Camp Rockfish, and like all servicemen forming the close relationships that became so important during the war. For the youngest members of our household the changes were not too drastic-there were still chores to do, school to attend, and the joys or sorrows that went with such events as bringing home report cards.

    • Closing Narration: We were tragically mistaken. It was only near the end of the war that we learned that there had indeed been extermination camps—Belsen, Buchenwald, Dachau, and Treblinka—where unspeakable and unthinkable horrors had been committed, while on Waltons Mountain a young man prayed for his grandfather
