Hoover High School and NCtv have honored our nation's veterans with this special documentary featuring the life story of Stark County resident Mr. William E. Pilati. He served in the 275th Armored Field Artillery Battalion during the Battle of the Bulge. A story 94 years in the making.
This project was produced by students in the video productions and broadcast journalism's NCtv Media programs.
The 23-minute film is a continuation of their on-going series of productions that feature local veterans. Student work on the documentary consisted of over 100 hours of work, which included research, filming and editing, time that was well spent in sharing the story of our nation's heroes so our students and community can understand their sacrifices.
"My Grandfather's Story," along with previous documentaries, can also be viewed on the school district website by navigating to the NCtv page under departments.
Thank you again to all who have served!
