Do One Nice Thing Features George Ciampa


    Do young people take freedom for granted? George Ciampa thinks so, and he's doing something wonderful about it.
    In August the World War II veteran led a group of high school teachers and a documentary film crew to Belgium, where they met with survivors of the Nazi occupation. George, 81, raised all the funds himself. He also brought along two fellow veterans, and they spoke to Belgian children while there. (George is pictured with a little Belgian girl.)
    The goal: To transmit to young people in particular what losing your freedom means. George remembers. When he was 18, the Californian landed on a Normandy beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Assigned to the 607th Graves Registration Company, he searched for soldiers' bodies and prepared them for burial.
