Veteran's Stories on Wednesday's Access Utah

May 21, 2014

With Memorial Day approaching, we’ll honor our military veterans on Wednesday’s Access Utah. Mark Lee Greenblatt, author of “VALOR: Unsung Heroes from Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Home Front,” will join us along with Sergeant Buck Doyle, a Utah resident who is featured in the book. We'll also speak with WWII veteran Edgar Harrell who will recount his experiences in the sinking of the USS Indianapolis and the sharks, hypothermia and the struggle to survive one of the U.S. Navy's greatest catastrophes at sea. Edgar Harrell is author of “Out of the Depths.” Then Terry Schow, former Utah Director of Veterans Affairs will discuss how changes in health care are affecting those who fought for our country. 

Mark Greenblatt's latest book, "Valor," features the story of Sergeant Buck Doyle, a Cache Valley Native.

Edgar Harrell's memoir "Out of the Depths," recalls his survival of the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis during WWII.
