Kevin Charles Kelley, Colonel United States Army Corps of Engineers (retired), talks about and reflects upon his involvement with the construction of the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. In Los Angeles, on the Thanksgiving of 2017, November 19, 15-year-old Kamron Kelley, the interviewer, and Kevin’s grandson, asks questions about Kevin’s contributions to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The most meaningful part of the interview is from 2:45 - 4:19, where Kevin recalls his most memorable experience
about a connection between two speakers at the opening ceremony of the memorial. Kamron chose to interview Kevin because Kamron always had an interest in World War II, but that’s not all. Kevin was in the Vietnam War, but would be talking about a completely different time of his life, but still under the realm of military.
Kamron thought this was a unique thing for someone to do, and that Kevin was one of few people with the experience required to be able to do this.
