Q & Abe


Bonus: Mr. Diamond in the Service

Season 1

This bonus episode accompanies Episode 3: Why are there no pictures of Lincoln in his military uniform?

While we’re looking for answers to the questions in the show, we sometimes run across things that don’t fit within the main episode, but are too fascinating not to share. In our conversation with the residents of the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Retired Staff Sergeant Jim Diamond told us a couple of incredible stories about his experiences serving in the army, including while he was working as part of the detail serving Arlington Cemetery and how he came to join the infantry after enlisting as a truck driver.
