In early 1917, Germany created havoc in the English Channel by sinking all commercial vessels. Their goal was to bring down the UK economy. The German navy sunk an American merchant ship bringing America into the war on April 6, 1917. America joined with France, Great Britain and Russia as the Allies against Germany.
Alvin York and Native American Joseph Oklahombi were among the hundreds of Americans, leaving behind their families and homes, sent to France to join this struggle.
How did a farmer from Pall Mall, Tennessee become the greatest American hero of the First World War? Convinced by his pastor to enlist, Alvin York ended up fighting in the Argonne and received the highest awards, including the Medal of Honor and Croix de Guerre, for his capture of 132 German soldiers.
One the same day, not far from the Argonne, the infantryman Joseph Oklahombi performed an exceptional feat of arms by taking 171 German soldiers as prisoners. Since he was an Indian from the Choctaw tribe in Oklahoma – who were not recognized as American citizens at that time but invited to enlist all the same – he never received the Medal of Honor.
Without ever meeting, these two men became symbols of the courage that young American volunteers showed in WWI. A hundred years later, both men deserve a spotlight in our collective memory. In 1941, as America prepared for World War II, actor Gary Cooper depicted Sargeant York in the movies and was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actor. Alvin York passed away in 1964. NOTE: All titles in the final version will be in English.
I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
