Bill Ingram – WWII Veteran video blog

Posted on 10 January, 2012 by in ,

Here is a video from Larry Martin describing some of WWII veteran Bill Ingram’s amazing stories. He was a prisoner of the Japanese for 3 and half years and was forced into labor on the infamous Burma/Thailand Railroad project.

Let us know what you think of this amazing story. More videos will be coming soon. We also welcome any questions about the second world war and/or the veterans Larry has interviewed. They will be answered as a part of our WWII video series and you will find them here.

      Hello Fran,

      I just saw this email today that you sent to me on Oct. 15th. The librarian emailed me about Hank’s passing. I was sorry to hear the news. I had just talked to Hank about a month before his passing. I did a interview with his friend Hugh Winnell at Hanks house overlooking Petoskey bay. What a beautiful home Hank had. Will you write me at Larry@lmww2com or call me in Michigan after the 19th of Dec. when I will be back home from Florida. I am not sure how much film I have of Hank. I look forward to hearing from you. Larry

      Hello Fran,

      I sent you a email but it was long after you had written, which my not replying to right away was because I did not see your email. I had talked to Hank just before his passing in Petoskey. Write so we can talk about Hank. He had invited me up to his home but I was not able to get up there quick enough. I have the interview with his friend Hugh Winnell if you would like it.

    Bill Ingram is my Uncle. He wanted to be on the Houston to be with his brother Robert.
    He opened his home and heart to me when I joined the Nsvy in ’67 just prior to my Vietnam Service on the USS Robert K Huntington DD781.

      Hello John,

      I was in the Navy from 66-70. I have been to Bill’s home twice and enjoyed both visits. I have about three hours of DVD film of him about the USS Houston. I also just interviewed another Houston survivor named Sizemore. I knew about Robert, can you imagine being their parents and having both sons POW of the Japanese. Keep in touch.

      Hello Chantal,

      I just found these emails that you wrote to me, thank you for taking time to answer since I was getting concerned. I have since spoke to Bill on the phone. He sounds great just like the same old Bill. Keep me posted if anything new if that is okay with you.
