      • Opening Narration: Sometimes it seemed as if we'd always been at war. The quiet of our lives on Walton's Mountain was interrupted daily by headlines and bulletins that took us to far off deserts and island outposts with impossible names. Our days swung between hope and despair, but somehow we went forward, meeting the demands of life in a troubled world, proving at home what the war was proving on every front—that a crisis can make leaders of the most ordinary of men.

      • Closing Narration: My brothers and I knew as we walked away that morning that things would never again be the same. The war would teach us how small Walton's Mountain was, and how ordinary our lives there. And yet, from the foxholes of France, and the skies over Germany, on the reefs and stolls of the South Pacific, wherever the war was to take us, we returned to the mountain in memory, over and over again; that wooded earth, that frame house, that weathered porch where our loved ones waited—home.
