The Power of Music

This film comes from Dave Pilkington. He’s from Centerville and his work has focused on family histories and events. It’s a story told by Bountiful resident and World War II veteran Jack Tueller. He was a fighter pilot in the war who took his trumpet everywhere. Two weeks after D-Day near Omaha Beach, a German sniper was taking aim at an airstrip construction site where Tueller was stationed.

Jack died August 15, 2016 at the age of 95. You can read more about his life at the Salt Lake Tribune.
