The Harrodsburg Tankers

(#1323) from Kentucky Life Program 1323 (2007)

World War II veteran Henry Anness and Cecil VanDiver Jr., the son of another member of Anness’s unit, tell host Dave Shuffett the story of the Harrodsburg Tankers. Deployed to the Philippines in November 1941, these 66 National Guardsmen endured fierce fighting, the Bataan Death March, and three years of captivity by the Japanese. Only 37 of the men made it back home.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
