One Last Time: World War II Veteran Stories
Part 1 and Part II with Jay Grammond
Members of the “Greatest Generation” are leaving us at an alarming rate. Photographer and Amateur Historian, Jay Grammond planned and facilitated a WWII History Series in Elk River for 13 years. In that time, he got to know numerous people that lived during that time in history. Holocaust, and Japanese-American Internment Camp Survivors; Homefront Workers; Allied POW’s; Veterans from all branches and Theatres, and in one case, even a German Soldier who fought the whole war on the Eastern Front! In this presentation, Jay is going to tell you about some of these people who participated in his History Series, and are sadly, no longer here. One Veteran even stated, “This will probably be my last time telling this story.” Don’t miss this unique insight into the lives of these amazing people.
Part I: Wed., Jan. 25, 2 p.m., SPCC Rm. 219, Free
Part II: Wed., Feb. 8, 2 p.m., SPCC Rm. 219, Free
