I am really honored that my dad and family's story was re-told on the television episode of FX Fargo - Season 2, Episode 10 - Palindrome. They did a really good job narrating the event. I added additional real photos from the USS Kirk Association and my own family photos. This 3-min long video covers the heroic efforts of my dad to save nearly 20 lives before the dramatic "ditch at sea".
Thank you to FX production and the USS Kirk association for the video and photos. Thank you to Captain Paul Jacobs and the crew of the USS Kirk for not only saving my family but hundreds of other families during this tumultuous time!
