Sailing Through the Storm: A WWII Sailor's Tale of Bravery and Dedication on D-Day

Updated: Dec 16, 2023

They are called "The Greatest Generation" for good reason. Many like Clyde C. McCully joined the military, taking on significant 'life and death' roles thousands of miles from home.

In a new documentary video movie about his life, this one time Coast Guard coxswain of a Higgins Boat LCVP from the USS Bayfield APA 33 did what many service-mined American's were doing to serve their country during time of war.

"The Clyde McCully Story - Portrait of a Leader" follows a life well lived from the invasion of Normandy and D-Day through his many years as a lifelong educator and college president. Travel through time with historic images and stories well documented through photos and interviews. Written and narrated by his daughter Mandy Capin with additional narration from her son Andrew Capin and Brian Rhea, this family heirloom video package is among some of our favorite projects and is why

we do what we do at Stories Well Told.

"When I first envisioned honoring my father with a documentary of his life, I was overwhelmed with the magnitude of the project. With encouragement and assistance from Brian at Stories Well Told, I was able to create a film that celebrates the extraordinary life my father lived. Brian’s production & editing of the film reflects his professionalism, dedication, and attention to detail. I am so happy with the final product and I very much appreciated Brian’s assistance in presenting the documentary at my father’s service. I am grateful to have worked with Brian on telling my father’s story of a life well-lived and blessed that it will be available for generations to come.
