Meet the Authors - Loyal Forces Book Launch

Thursday, March 7, 2013
5:00 pm reception, 6:00 pm presentation, 7:00 pm book signing
US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center at The National WWII Museum

Join The National WWII Museum to celebrate the launch of Loyal Forces, written and compiled by Museum curators Toni M. Kiser and Lindsey F. Barnes. At a time when every American was called upon to contribute to the war effort-whether by enlisting, buying bonds, or collecting scrap metal-the use of American animals during World War II further demonstrates the resourcefulness of the US Army and the many sacrifices that led to the Allies' victory. Through 157 photographs from The National WWII Museum collection, Loyal Forces captures the heroism, hard work, and innate skills of innumerable animals that aided the military as they fought to protect, transport, communicate, and sustain morale. From the last mounted cavalry charge of the US Army to the 36,000 homing pigeons deployed overseas, service animals made a significant impact on military operations during World War II. Authors Toni M. Kiser and Lindsey F. Barnes deftly illustrate that every branch of the armed forces and every theater of the war utilized the instincts and dexterity of these dependable creatures, who, though not always in the direct line of enemy fire, had their lives put at risk for the jobs they performed.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information call 504-528-194 x 229.
