Alums Tim Hart-Andersen (M.Div. '84) and his father Henry "Hank" Andersen (M.Div. '51) were featured on the PBS News Hour December 23rd. Hank and Tim shared about Hank's experience of serving in the military during World War II. Crammed into the hold of a ship during the Battle of the Bulge, Hank decided that some encouragement could be had in singing Christmas carols on the deck of the ship. This small act saved the lives of several soldiers when the boat was hit by a torpedo! Read the full transcript here.
