As the "Greatest Generation" dwindles and time takes its toll on the physical reminders of World War II, preserving surviving artifacts from that conflict becomes more and more important. And a drive to do just that is underway in what at first seems a very unlikely place: Alaska.
SAVE OUR HISTORY joins host Steve Thomas (This Old House) as he travels through the Aleutians to Attu Island, where he walks in the footsteps of the soldiers engaged in a little-known but crucial conflict of WWII. Along the way, Steve touches down on other islands involved in the war effort, highlighting a variety of military structures now being documented, preserved, and restored. On the beach where the troops landed, Steve details why the Battle of Attu was a wake-up call to America.
