Sacrifice

In this episode Amy Alleman talks about the decision she and her husband Micheal B. Alleman made to join the military in the wake of the attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Amy talks about why the history teacher wanted to volunteer with a pregnant wife and two small boys, and what sacrifice meant to both of them. She discusses the realities of that commitment when a solider dies in service to this country, and how her service, quite proudly, continues despite his death. Her sons, who know their father mostly through his writings and their relatives, read from their father’s journals, as the entire family gives us insight into what sacrifice entails for thousands of American families.
