I really wish these interviews would be a part of the U.S. high school curriculum along with translated versions of similar interviews from men and women on both sides of the war. Teaching our youth that war really is hell but also complicated could help them personally gain from the sacrifices made.

Teach about the good and bad on both sides. Teach about the Germans who risked their lives subverting evil. Teach about how America rounded up Japanese and sent them to camps in Utah/Nevada. We really need them to understand this if we want to raise the next generation with any measure of hope that they will make things better. But most importantly, teach them to think critically and learn from the mistakes of others (in this case, the past). Knowledge can be priceless, but learning by observing others is a rare occasion that falls into the category of "a free lunch".

It's sad when I see these guys go one by one. The series really makes me feel like I know these guys.
