As they begin their journey home from their student exchange term, Charlie Brown and the gang find themselves sidetracked. They have severe car trouble and more importantly, they pass by various monuments to World Wars I and II. With Linus guiding them through these memorials, they learn about the events of the wars and the sacrifices required of the troops who fought them. Written by

Linus van Pelt:
[Reciting "In Flanders Fields"]
In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow/Between the crosses, row on row/That mark our place, and in the sky/The larks still bravely sing and fly/Scarce heard amid the guns below, we are the dead/Short days ago we lived, felt dawn saw sunset glow/Loved and were loved, and now we lie in Flanders Fields/In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow/Between the crosses, row on row.

As I watched the recently released on DVD movie "Ike, Countdown to D-Day", starring Tom Selleck, I was reminded of another film. It was just a 20 or 25 minute animated piece starring the Peanuts Gang titled "What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?" In such a respectful and poignant way, this film recounted the awesome sacrifices made at the Normandy Invasion and left me with a profound impression that will remain with me the rest of my life. I only saw it once, the night it was first broadcast, but I will never forget it. I notice it is not available on DVD. If anyone out there reading this has any clout in the digital world, could you please see about getting it released on DVD? As one American who owes so much to those gallant men and women for their sacrifice, I sure would appreciate it.
