By Glenn Staab on September 24, 2007

There have been many wars that shaped the history of their time, but no singular event so dramatically changed the entire course of our history as the Second World War. The impact was both on a global and individual level, altering lives, communities and nations unlike any event before or since. World War II touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America.

In this video, the former Ohio Governor, John Gilligan sat down with his daughter, the current Kansas Governor, Kathleen Sebelius, to discuss his service during World War II. Gilligan served in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters as a Navy officer. He was awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in action at the battle of Okinawa. Very interesting interview!

Buffalo Bill founded it in the late 1860s, Wild Bill was its sheriff for awhile, and General Custer with his Seventh Cavalry was stationed at nearby Fort Hays. So I come by my big-screen love affair with Westerns naturally, and I was one of the weekend movie-goers who boosted "3:10 to Yuma" to its top slot in weekend movie ticket sales. I went for entertainment and was entertained, even though I had to avert my eyes at times. The film was far more violent than I had supposed it would be. Still, I am not naive and I know they'll never again make Westerns the way they used to. Nor should they, if revisionist history makes any sense at all - which it does.
