He was once considered the most trusted man in America and despite signing off from his signature news program in 1981, Walter Cronkite’s image and voice remain among the most iconic in journalism.

In a career spanning more than three decades, Cronkite delivered the electrifying events of the Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam War and the resignation of President Nixon into the homes of millions.

In 2006, the veteran news reporter and anchor wrote the forward to a book called "Memories of World War II" and spoke at the Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester, which was presenting a new exhibition of pictures from the Second World War.
