Joe Was There | D-Day Veteran Micro-Doc Chapter Two

WWII veteran’s story told over three miniature documentaries

CLARK COUNTY — This year is the 76th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion of WWII. A year ago and its partners elsewhere in Washington had the immense privilege of speaking with a man who was there. 

This is his story.

Joseph Meiners was 95 when we interviewed him about his experiences in the second world war. He made it to 96, before passing away in December of last year. He loved his friends, his family and his God. 

Today we present chapter two of a three-part micro-documentary on the war-time experiences and life of Joe Meiners. Thank you for watching.
