I have not posted here before. But..since this film was produced I do two things on October 28..every year. I watch this film with my children and I try to phone “Tripper” Cronhkite and catch up with him. It is an amazing film and reminds me that war is indeed hell and that we should remember always the men who fought it.
Note: John Scott Porterfield’s father, CAP John Porterfield (“A” Company Commander) was killed in action on October 28th during the Jackson Heights battle. “Tripper” Cronkhite’s father was Col. Willis Cronkhite, “F” Company Commander at Jackson Heights.
