Afternoon programs honoring veterans
with videos of them discussing their service

More than sixty people have shared their military history since 2013 so far. More video memoirs will be recorded, at no cost to veterans beyond 2020. Some of the program highlights include the legendary Chuck Booth recalling his March 8, 1944 brush with death as a B-24 pilot during the Berlin Raid. And the Creighton man that became a POW when his B-17 bomber was shelled. One man became a POW at the very same time his older brother was held prisoner. The late Alyce Farrell-Massart was a Tarentum native; after service in WWII handling Japanese code for the US Navy as a WAVE, Massart, of the restaurant family, became a local realtor. Her first client was a Japanese man.

These video memoirs are part of efforts to record local veteran history. The producer seeks more WWII era vets, especially women, Korean era vets, our Cold Warriors and our Vietnam era veterans. Bring a friend too. Museum doors open at noon, admission is free. Donations are accepted at the door, to help keep the lights on.
