During WW II Leonard Weitzman served with the Army in Europe.

During June 2-3, 2013, we had the fortunate opportunity to hear and preserve the stories of six Pittsburgh area WWII veterans at century old Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum.  As we usually did during our visits to the museum, we set up our mobile recording studio in the venerable “Gettysburg Room,” a stately room paneled in dark wood devoted to the African-American experience during the Civil War.

During this project, our roster included Walter Schwartz (Merchant Marine Service), Joe Zablotny (Navy), Leonard Weitzman (Army), Kathleen Short (Royal Air Force), Jim Scanlon (Army), and Albert Zimmerman (Army).
