MAKING A DIFFERENCE

May 2014

Robert L. Williams


“D-Day was probably the most defining day of the 20th century .... if it wasn’t for all that, we wouldn’t have the life we have today.”

F

or 50 years, Robert L. Williams didn’t speak much of the war. But all that changed in 1994 when, at the age of 71, he joined with other paratroopers in the skies above Normandy, France, to re-create his dramatic jump into history. A Northern Kentucky native, Williams (featured in Kentucky WWII Veterans: In Their Own Words) enlisted in the Army in 1942 at the age of 19. Sent to Georgia, he trained at Camp Toccoa, where the young recruits got into the best shape of their lives by running three miles up a mountain every day before breakfast. More training in Tennessee and Kentucky, then it was off to New York to board an English passenger liner across the Atlantic and join the now world-wide fray. At midnight on June 6, 1944, Williams and 12,000 other members of the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions were already in the air aboard C-44 troop carriers, waiting to drop into the skies. Below, troops were hitting the beaches at Utah and Omaha. D-Day. Loaded with 100 pounds of gear, Williams parachuted behind enemy lines into a swamp created by the Nazis for the very purpose of bogging paratroopers. “It was very dark, a partly moonlit night,” Williams remembers. “You couldn’t see where you were going to land, and I had no idea I was going to land in water.”

Fifty years later, it was a very different scene on Utah Beach. “It was daylight, nobody was shooting at the airplane, and when we walked off the field, there was a huge crowd greeting the old guys.” That jump was Williams’ brainchild — something he’d been thinking about during those 50 years of silence. His vast collection of wartime memorabilia had been tucked away in the attic and basement — a war diary kept by buddy “Jokin’ Joe Jones” Slosarczyk, who never saw his Wisconsin home again; newspapers; dog tags and pinup girls, photos, booklets, memories. But the silence was broken when Williams — who persevered through Pentagon red tape to arrange the commemorative jump — saw just how much his plunge into the darkened French skies meant to people 50 years later. When he saw how a grateful France pulled out all the stops to celebrate the anniversary of D-Day. When he saw the crowds cheering the “old guys.” “It was a grand way to bring attention back to the guys who made the sacrifice. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do it.” There was the tribute, and of course the excitement. But what Williams didn’t expect was the visceral memories which would emerge when the former soldiers strapped on their parachutes once more. “When the pilot started up the

engines on that old C-47 transport, that’s when the guys got quiet. Fifty years disappeared. The smell of the plane, the sound of the engine. It all came back to me,” said Williams, his face betraying the emotion the memory evoked. “We were all laughing and joking beforehand, but as soon as that engine started, all their expressions changed.” And so today Williams visits schools, where children born 50 years after his first historic jump listen closely to his story. He signs his book, Return to Normandy, he displays his wartime collection. “The life we have today is the most easy, comfortable life that’s ever been invented,” he says. “It’s all possible because of the defining days of World War II. D-Day was probably the most defining day of the 20th century, because it was the turning point.” “There were 5,000 ships out there in the English Channel; there were 900 planes full of paratroopers. It was the biggest sea-air invasion the world has ever seen. And if it wasn’t for that, we wouldn’t have the life we have today.”

Our heartfelt thanks to all veterans. You made a difference. KET.org

It begins Tuesday, May 13 at 8/7 pm on KET2 and Sunday, May 18 at 3/2 pm on KET. Moore’s journey, spurred by the suicide of an old friend and fellow officer, takes him into the personal lives of different soldiers as they attempt to reintegrate into society, establish new identities and, for many, find a new mission. The first episode features a veteran who has successfully translated his experience in the military to a career as a police officer. “Fitting In,” airing May 20 and 25, focuses on the idea of fitting in at home when soldiers are fundamentally changed by war. “Moving Forward” on May 27 and June 1 examines the drive that veterans often have of finding a new mission after returning from war.

EXPLORE KENTUCKY

A TRUE KENTUCKY HOME

Tour the governor’s mansion on its 100th anniversary Curious about the interior and history of the Kentucky chief executive’s official residence? Come on inside with Kentucky Governor’s Mansion: A Century of Reflection, which traces the evolution of the home from its construction in 1914 to its use as a diplomatic tool for the Commonwealth. Narrated by newswoman and Kentuckian Diane Sawyer, the program premieres Monday, May 5 at 9/8 pm on KET. In Kentucky Governor’s Mansion, produced by Michael Breeding MEDIA, you’ll meet the first families who have lived in the Beaux-Arts mansion and see firsthand how it has changed and evolved over the past 100 years. The new mansion was envisioned as a gubernatorial

dream house, not only a comfortable and appropriate four-year home away from home for first families, but also a structure that would reflect both classical taste and the accomplishments and aspirations of Kentucky itself. A promotional brochure for the mansion wasn’t shy about proclaiming the new residence as being the center of all that’s modern: “All the big roads, the railroads, the automobiles, carriages, buggies, bicycles, boats, and airships — all lead to Frankfort, Kentucky.” Kentucky Governor’s Mansion also airs Wednesday, May 7 at 10/9 pm and other times throughout the month on the Kentucky Channel.

SHORT TAKES Today’s KET: Honoring those who served As Memorial Day approaches, we are featuring programs that explore the many facets of U.S. military service and combat, from remembering the epic WWII D-Day operation on its 70th anniversary to delving into some of the most difficult questions facing veterans returning from war today. The popular National Memorial Day Concert, presenting its 25th anniversary broadcast this year, is sure to provide another wonderfully uplifting mix of tribute and performance. I’m proud that KET offers these programs because they honor the service and sacrifice of the brave men and women in uniform who, along with their families, have given so much for our country. Like many of you, I have a family history rich in military service. We still have my father’s Marine Corps uniform, and we’re proud of my uncle’s service in Vietnam. Stories of my grandfather fighting in WWII at the Battle of the Bulge, as well as of my great aunt, who was one of the first women to enlist in the WAVES, will always fill me with gratitude. I’m similarly touched by remarkable stories like that of Robert Williams, featured again in this issue of Visions from his interview in the 2007 KET documentary Kentucky WWII Veterans: In Their Own Words. These are only a handful of the countless acts of service to our country and stories of heroism and valor that deserve to be shared and never forgotten. So join us in remembering all those who have served, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and sharing our appreciation for the many courageous men and women who continue to serve our country. Sincerely,

Shae Hopkins KET Executive Director and CEO 22
