Pictured: Program title graphic The U.P. Recalls The WAR
In this 2007 WNMU-TV production, people living in the Upper Peninsula recall World War II, sharing images and stories from the battlefields of Europe, and the home towns we know and love. They take us from the Battle of the Bulge, to Italy with the 10th Mountain Division, to the glider factory in Kingsford, and to the mines of the U.P. iron range. This is the story of people who fought for freedom in the greatest war the world has ever known, both abroad and at home.

Between 1942 and 1945, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the Navy trained nearly 15,000 pilots, including 41st President George H.W. Bush, to land and take off from two makeshift aircraft carriers —the Seaandbee and Greater Buffalo – in the safety of landlocked Lake Michigan. This documentary sheds light on that little-known training operation and over 100 classic aircraft sitting on the bottom of Lake Michigan.
