“It’s been very satisfying for both Martin and I,” said Woods, who recently toured Australia giving lectures and meeting people whose lives were changed by the Mormon Yankees. “It has enriched not only the lives of those who served in the 1950s, but it’s brought them joy later in life. It’s renewed and welded a wonderful friendship.”
Andersen had a blast playing “history detective.”
“It was interesting to interview these guys,” Andersen said. “Each person had their own story of what the Mormon Yankees were, everyone had a slice of the story, but no one had the overall picture. We were able to paste together the overall story and when it premiered at BYU, many were amazed at how big it was. “That was neat to put together, more than 60 years later.”
“Mormon Yankees” can be purchased wherever LDS books are sold.
