With an article coming up in The Natchez Democrat as well as a recently published article in Country Roads, my dad, Howard Pritchartt, Jr., is getting quite a bit of exposure this month.  The following is a video by Natchez resident Bill Slatter, who is interviewing World War II veterans in the area.

  4. Thank you for sharing.... Like listening to my own dad one more time and yes brought tears, dad was at .camp Shelby too had stories of guarding Nazi soldiers.....My Pritchartt's remarks of the methods of incineration, the devastation and how the atomic bomb saved lives highlight the horrors of war but his humor and capacity to make do characterize the greatness of his generation and great America's like him.
