You have a chance to relive World War Two through the memories of four veterans who survived.
Many call them the greatest generation. From 1939 to 1945 more than 100 million people from 30 different countries in the world served in the military during the most widespread war in history. In the U.S. More than 16- million men and women answered the call to duty. More than 671-thousand were wounded and more than 450-thousand never returned home. One of the ways we are saying thank you is to fly surviving World War two veterans back to Washington DC to see the national World War Two memorial. The Honor Flight program has flown 100-thousand world war two veterans to the nation’s capital. There are 117 different “hubs” across the nation which promote, raise funds, and find World War Two veterans who want to visit the memorial but cannot afford the trip.
Two movie producers, Dan Hayes and Clay Berga with Freethink Media decided to accompany four World War two veterans and tell their story as they reflect on the sacrifice, courage, and heart wrenching moments of fighting in World War two. Jay Burcham of Burcham’s Metals in Albany has joined with others including the River Center of Lebanon to show this documentary in the mid Willamette Valley. The movie will be shown at the River Center Saturday, May 25th at 1pm. Tickets to the viewing will be pre-sold at the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce and at Burcham’s Metals in Albany. You can also call Dave Adams at 541-280-8833 to get help in purchasing a ticket. There will be no child care for people attending the movie.
