The WTUZ News Team, Mary Alice and Nick McWilliams, were able to speak with several individuals for a special daily presentation that aired the week leading up to the Friday, November 19, 2021 return of Army Pvt. Emmet Schwartz.

On the final day, we had the privilege of talking more about the past Schwartz left behind at the age of 24 and was able to speak with Carol Geers, who is the oldest of the nieces and nephews, as she recounted her memories of when she was 7-years-old when Schwartz enlisted.
