Cambria filmmaker Kyle Plummer continues to win acclaim for his award-winning documentary video about local residents who experienced military service during the Korean War.
The Rotary Club of Cambria featured Plummer’s video at its July 19 meeting at Cambria Pines Lodge, during which veterans were introduced and received “Welcome Home” banners.
Six of the veterans present and the widow of a seventh appeared in the video. Titled “Korea Remembered,” the documentary was one of five winners in a national competition for high school students. They attended as guests of the Rotary Club and Ladies Auxiliary of American Legion Post No. 432.
Club President Mike Griffin presented banners provided by Welcome Home Military Heroes. Past Rotary President Greg Sanders, a Vietnam veteran, introduced the program, commenting on how Korean War veterans often returned home with little or no public recognition for their service.
Plummer, 16, will be a high school junior in the Fall. His brother, Carlos, helped in the production. “Korea Remembered” and two other videos about the war can be viewed at www.superimage ltd.com/blog.
