Homecoming: Sgt. Hamilton's Long Journey

Original airdate 
Nov 1, 2019

Sgt. Vernon Hamilton’s plane was shot down over Germany during World War II. The plane and remains of the 19-year-old Army Air Corps engineer-gunner from Monongahela, Pennsylvania were never found. Decades later, an excavation and forensics team bring long-awaited closure to his family. WQED explores the diligent work of those researchers, and the poignant “welcome home” from the people of his small hometown. WQED's David Solomon stopped by the QED Morning show to talk about the documentary, which will air on WQED TV on November 7th at 8pm, as well as the Special Screening Event for the documentary at Ringgold High School on November 6th.
