Dining as a first-class passenger on the Titanic was a lavish affair. First-class passengers on the Titanic who were willing to pay extra could dine in the elegant À la Carte Restaurant or the Café Parisien, even though breakfast, lunch, and dinner were included in the price of their ticket. Some passengers had even paid the equivalent of $124,000 in today’s dollars for the sumptuous, ten-course extravaganza!

Meet Joe Huber, Jr. as he recalls his childhood spent in a Japanese POW Camp.  Between January 27th and February 23rd of 1945 the U.S. successfully conducted three prisoner rescue raids, deep behind enemy lines in the Philippines.  7,700 prisoners whose execution had been ordered, and who were starving to death, lived because of these hastily assembled raids by tiny forces into the midst of major Japanese forces.  Joe Huber, Jr., one of those saved, will highlight these daring raids, using his ringside seat in the largest of them as an example.
