Chris O’Donnell is a family man who takes after the best role model he could ever imagine — his own father. To honor his memory, Chris uses his Who Do You Think You Are? experience to learn more about his paternal line.
On tonight’s episode, he travels to St. Louis and Washington D.C. and finds men who fought for their country, but never stopped fighting for their families. Along the way, Chris connects with his past in unique and personal ways. From reading his great-great-grandfather’s personal account of a devastating epidemic, to seeing incredible photos of his ancestors, to discovering rare service records — even finding a relic in the Smithsonian — Chris finds ties that bind him to a lasting legacy of courage, patriotism and devotion to family.
It’s a stirring episode you won’t want to miss. Watch tonight at 9|8c on TLC.
