The story of the life of  Nebraska’s last World War I veteran.


Jess Edmisten didn’t think he’d live through World War I.  Not only did the Custer County native survive the carnage on the battlefields, he lived another 85 years becoming Nebraska’s last living World War I veteran.  The program describes Edmisten’s firsthand accounts of his military service, as well as reflecting on the contributions and sacrifices of other Nebraskans during the Great War.
