Papa's Grave

On Memorial Day, Al Stuart thinks of his father, an Army doctor who died just three weeks before the end of World War II. Al was young when his dad died, and he never had the chance to know him well. In 1985, he took his wife and daughter Amy to visit his dad’s grave in Belgium. He talks with Dick about how a caretaker's unexpected kindness moved him - and how visiting the grave brought back  memories of his father. This story originally aired on November 11, 2008.
