The Greatest Honor is the story of a son's last chance to understand the combat experience of his father, a veteran of "C" Company of the 260th Infantry Regiment, 65th Infantry Division. From Le Havre, France to Linz, Austria, John Amm—a quiet farmer, husband and father from Pontiac, Illinois—and his fellow infantrymen witnessed the horrors of the Holocaust, the cost of the war on the people in towns and camps they liberated, and the sacrifices made by his comrades in arms. He remained mostly silent about this experience for almost 70 years. The Greatest Honor, a new documentary from Emmy® award-winning producer, writer, and filmmaker Kane Farabaugh, details the journey of discovering John Amm's silent heroism, what that information has done to help his own family and those he served with understand a pivotal moment in history, and the effort to preserve that story for posterity. The Greatest Honor premieres Friday, May 22nd at 8:00pm on WTVP-HD 47.1 as a lead in to our Memorial Day programming. [Learn More]
