CBS Sunday Morning will feature Donna Reed story

Letters for the Boys airs Sunday, December 24, 2017

Martha Teichner reports on how Hollywood star Donna Reed contributed to the war effort during World War II, by sharing letters with American troops and entertaining service members at the fabled Hollywood Canteen, and how her messages from the homefront are being remembered today.

Preliminary research was done by producer Amy Wall and correspondent Teichner, who spent a day in Denison in August. They left with six hours of footage of interviews and seldom seen artifacts from the archives. They also interviewed Mary Owen, Donna Reed's daughter, at her home in New York City.
