Thank You, Eddie Hart
Winner of 2 Regional Emmy Awards
Eddie Hart was a North Carolina farmer-turned-soldier in the waning days of World War II in Europe. He never came home.
Eddie was buried in Holland along with thousands of his fellow American comrades who had sacrificed their lives so that others could be free. People like Betty Vrancken who had lived under brutal Nazi occupation in Holland, not far from where Eddie was buried. And so, when Betty had a chance to express her gratefulness to her American liberators, she made a lifelong promise to care for the grave of an American soldier. That soldier was Eddie Hart.
Thank You, Eddie Hart is not just a World War II story. It's a stirring reminder of the impact of war, the value of honor and freedom, and what an extraordinary difference that ordinary people can make.
