Ep. 051 - Kenyon Parker, WWII Veteran


On the latest episode of Frederick Uncut, Parker, 92, shares his story of life before, during and after the war, and how he's adapted to nearly a century of societal changes. Podcast host Colin NcGuire and News-Post reporter Nancy Lavin also talk about The News-Post's special publication, "Voices of Valor," which pays homage to more than 50 WWII veterans who live in Frederick County, including Parker.

Their stories offer a glimpse into the lives of the "Greatest Generation" — across theaters and branches of service, of men and women, black and white and Japanese-American, some who experienced battle and bloodshed and others whose service was unlike the Hollywood characterization of war.
