I am making a small documentary about my father, Sgt. W.F. Pinkerton, who passed at the age of 65 in 1985. I am now the same age as he was when he left this 'mortal coil' and feel, while I still have the time, that his incredible service to our country should be honored - in film. Tens of thousands of unknown-to-the-greater-public soldiers served as he did. This documentary is intended to honor them all. A 33 year Army Veteran, Wilbur crossed the English Channel in early June of 1944 to the beaches of Normandy and beyond; He served in Korea and taught at the 'School of the Assassins' in Panama in the 1950's; He deployed to Viet Nam in the late 60's, had service in Spain, Germany and Iceland and, sired six children (four of whom are, including myself, veterans), to whom he remained mostly a stranger. He married his sweetheart of 40 years and my late mother Kathleen, a British cook, just about the time the Bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 5, 1945. Please help if you can.
