The Passing Of My Mentor Hugh Upton

On Febuary 20, 2020, my former mentor and former US Navy Admiral, whom was a neighbor of mine in Oakton, Virginia, passed away in his home in Florida. Hugh was instrumental in developing my interest in world history and philosophy while I did yardwork for him during my time at James Madison High School. Hugh Upton introduced me to two of his German friends whom I interviewed for my Advanced Placement World War II project. Hugh worked as the cameraman during that interview which can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dsi_4iYmSVQ
