WWII Veteran Gerry Hosford Interview

Interview with WWII Veteran Gerry Hosford at Delaney Street Baptist Church in Orlando, FL, May 30th, 2010, Memorial Day weekend.

 

Veteran Hosford served as Staff Sergeant in the Army Air Corps during WWII working on aircraft such as B-10’s and the Keystone Bomber. He recalls being on a date in a movie theater in Shreveprt, LA when the news broke out: “Pearl Harbor has been bombed. All military report to base.” His date was surprised because he hadn’t told her he was in the military.

Mr. Hosford remembers Orlando as a small town when he came in the 1960s and today he says Orlando, “Is a wonderful place to be!”
