Lunchbox Lecture - "Reliving the War Through One Soldier's Letters" by Lindsey Barnes

Wednesday, December 19, 2012
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The National WWII Museum, 945 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA

An in-depth look through one of the Museum's archival collections, specifically the letters and photographs that William Vernon Bennett mailed back to friends and family in San Francisco, California. Bennett began service with the US and Canadian 1st Special Service Force, specially trained in airborne, amphibious, mountain, and winter commando tactics. He landed on the evacuated Kiska Island in the Aleutians, then participated in the Italian campaigns and Southern France before the group was inactivated in December 1944. Bennett then joined the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division for fighting in Germany. He ended the war in Berchtesgaden and remained in that area for occupation duty until August 1945. Feel free to bring your lunch or just come and enjoy the lecture.  For more information call 504-528-1944 x 229.
