Walter Cronkite, The Price of Liberty

In honor of the memory of Walter Cronkite, here is an early ’50s film by the Department of Defense he narrates, “The Price of Liberty,” paying tribute to the contributions of women to preserving America’s way of life, democratic freedoms and peace.

Cronkite: “Liberty is the most expensive commodity in the world today. We have it only because we are willing and able to pay the price for preserving it against communist aggressive.”

CBS News has many tributes to Cronkite’s career. In grade school, we would occasionally watch one of the history shows, “You Are There,” anchored by Cronkite. They were very good.
