The book, which was originally written for his family, records the missions he participated in as a member of a ten member crew on a B-24 Bomber,"

This is an amazing record, told, of course, in his own words. ITOW is honored to host him.

The 71st anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor will also be remembered that day with readings of poetry written by and about veterans.

Selections from the collected poems will be compiled in a blog that everyone will be able to access online and print.

Please join the museum's staff and other area veterans for this special celebration.

The ITOW Veterans Museum is located at 805 West Main, Perham. For more information call 218-346-7678.
