I met Bettilew on accident the same day I met Ann Veren. I was sitting in a coffee shop, and Bettilew’s granddaughter complimented my earrings. We got to talking, and after telling her of the work I was doing, she insisted I interview her grandmother. I’m so glad it worked out the way it did. What a pleasure it was to meet both Bettilew and Ann!
Bettilew tells two stories in this episode. One endearing, one about the war. Both are valuable to understanding our past.
