In this episode of The Best of Living in Iowa, we'll remember those who served in World War II with a look at Iowans who flew with the famed Tuskegee Airmen, reminisce with former members of the Women's Army Corps and relive the Battle of Iwo Jima through the eyes of the Barnett brothers.



For 16 seasons, Living in Iowa was an omnibus television series that illustrated what it meant to be "uniquely Iowan." Through compelling human interest stories, it provided snapshots of Iowans representing every walk of life. As part of its 50th anniversary, Iowa Public Television will revisit this popular series through The Best of Living in Iowa, a weekly program that features stories gathered from the archives of the original series. From this rich treasure trove of stories, viewers will relive moments from the past and be reminded of Iowa's unique heritage.
