The Way We Were



The Way We Were, a special collector's edition, reveals the human aspect of some of America's men and women in uniform who silently served their country.

"We came from all over the country. We came from every facet of life. And together we served as one in defense of our country and became known as: The Americans at Chicksands." From the introduction. 

Now available in DVD format it is two times bigger than the VHS edition with many never seen before video clips and pictures.

It is now in two volumes on two separate DVDs. The total time is 1:41:05 including two bonus features, one on each DVD.

The first volume spans the years from 1950 when we arrived at Chicksands to 1995 when we closed up shop and left.

Volume two has scenes from nearby towns and communities; the Priory; the priory during restoratioin; opening of the Inteligence Museum; the rededication of the Memorial Wall and concludes with fabulous reunion highlights.

The bonus features shall remain a mystery. I assure you, you won't be disappointed.

A timeless treaure in a format that may be passed down through the generations. Every son and/or daughter should have their own personal copy. A precious memory of what dad/mom did in the war. 

Shipping includes local tax.

Chicksands, England, painted May 2001.

The gardens of Chicksands Priory are lovely and quite interesting. They have been lovingly tended by the Friends of Chicksands Walled Garden, Brigadier and Mrs. Holtom. The Chicksands Alumni Fountain is located in these gardens. The fountain was dedicated at the Millennium Reunion by Brigadier Holtom and Bill Grayson. This painting is one of my personal favorites, perhaps because of the link to all things Chicksands but I am also very pleased with the wisteria, bricks, cloud and sky reflections seen in the glass of the cold frame.

From the collection of Rebecca Fahey. Rebecca is a Chix Alum and used her talents in water color to bring forth the beautiful reflections of her time at Chicksands. Rebecca travels to the United Kingdom often and always has her brushes, easel and keen eye at the ready.
