VBOB LUNCHEON FOR FLORIDA SOUTHEAST CHAPTER
Happy New Year! With the Holidays as a not too distant pleasant memory, I am now back to catching up with news updates and oral history work for the Making History Project.
As an associate member of the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge, I had the honor and privilege of attending their latest luncheon in West Palm Beach on December 13, 2015. The luncheon was a dignified affair with a Color Guard to begin the festivities and U.S. Army combat veteran Brian Mast giving an inspired keynote speech to the many World War II Veterans present. Good times were had by many and I had the distinct pleasure of making some new friends including Bill Singer, Irving Booksin, Larry Goldgeier, Joseph Beaton, Stan Saltz and Robert Erskine who all agreed to give oral history interviews in the near future.
2016 looks to be another busy year filled with World War II Veteran oral history interviews, academic and conference presentations, and trips to Veteran reunions and memorials. If you would like to make a donation to the project or volunteer your time, or know of a Veteran who would like to given an oral history interview, please reach out to me.
