On this episode of Our American Stories, Scientist and university administrator Willy Lensch shares how his father's cancer diagnosis blessed their and one other unsuspecting relationship; Brent Evanoff discovers a secret he’d been unaware of for over 25 years. Through that process, he manages to help another veteran reconnect with something they lost as well; and retired US Navy Captain Mike McDaniel takes us back to when he was just a 3rd grade boy, about to learn that his dad was shot down on his 81st combat mission over Vietnam.
