Larry Martin's World War II: In Their Own Words
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

World War II documentarian Larry Martin will present a screening of his interview with Werner Klemm. Klemm was stationed aboard the USS Dobbin, a destroyer tender about 200 yards behind the USS Arizona on the “Day of Infamy” - the day Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese Imperial Navy. Larry’s interest in World War II history and his passion for both gathering and sharing the stories of the men and women of the war has sparked the creation of the In Their Own Words project. According to Martin, “the program’s goal is to educate further generations on this fascinating and unique history of World War II, as well as to foster an appreciation for the hardships endured by all war veterans so that we may all live in a free country.”

This event will be held live on the Zoom platform. Registration is required. Click https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIqd--hqj0pGtH29dzBJhncidSnehRd8ItZ to register.
