World War II Foundation and Tim Gray Media Re-Teams with David F. Alfonso to Produce Bruce Sundlun Documentary

KINGSTON, R.I.--(Business Wire)--The WORLD WAR II FOUNDATION and TIM GRAY MEDIA today announced that David F. Alfonso will join the previously announced “Above and Beyond” documentary film project as its Executive Producer. Scheduled for a 2014 release, “Above and Beyond” will highlight a true story of perseverance and courage, as lived by former Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun. Sundlun, a Jewish-American, served as a pilot in the U.S. Army Air Corps. His B-17 Flying Fortress, the “Damn Yankee,” was shot down in German-occupied Belgium in 1943. Sundlun had to make his way back to Allied lines and was hidden by Catholic priests and resistance fighters. The Jewish-American pilot stole over 100 bicycles in his trip across Europe, and ultimately joined in the French resistance under the code name “Salamander” and assisted them in their heroic fight against the Nazis.
