WHEN DUTY LED TO THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, A NATION KEPT ITS PROMISE.
It's a miracle when a solider comes home safely from the brutality of war, but some homecomings of a life laid down for their country are too, a miracle.
Journalists Jennifer Holton and Ky Sisson are telling the incredible story of Lt. Ewart Sconiers, WWII hero of Defuniak Springs, Florida, and the unrelenting pursuit of "promise keepers" to honor an American hero seven decades after his death.
