My experience with doing stories with war veterans is those who have seen the most, talk the least. I think there are some memories they had just rather forget.
Put Charles Migliorino in that category. It was only by chance I heard his story. He was interviewing for an associate district judge appointment, and I was a member of the Judicial Nominating Commission interviewing him. It was after the interview was over, he added, almost as epilogue, the thing he was most proud of in life was letting a sister hear her dead brother’s voice for the first time in 40 years.
I was fascinated, as I think you will be in this week’s video blog, with this Marine’s Love Story.
