Join us from 9-11am the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month for an informal presentation about a military conflict, branch or event. Come early to enjoy light refreshments.
10 November – Flint Whitlock – Come and listen as Flint presents a story of courage beyond measure, Desperate Valour: Triumph at Anzio. Anzio was a place where British and American soldiers stood shoulder to shoulder despite Hitler’s demand that his troops “throw the invaders back into the sea”. It was a place where 24 Medals of Honor and two Victoria Crosses would be awarded. It was also the place where Colorado’s own 157th Infantry Regiment, part of the 45th Infantry Division, did much to save the beach-head from annihilation.
8 December – David Barrett – Dave Barrett, Historian and writer will discuss his soon to be published book about events and political decisions related to the end of WWII in the Pacific. His presentation will focus on four principal topics in the last year of the war: Unconditional Surrender, the escalation of the war, the Japanese wartime government, and finally, the key decisions made by the leaders in both Japan and the United States during the final months of the war.
