George Jackson- After being drafted to be an engineer, George decided to take quite a different path; he volunteered to become a paratrooper. Upon successful completion of the rigorous training, Jackson, now serving with the 101st Airborne “Screaming Eagles,” was transported to England and then onto the European mainland where he participated in Operation Market Garden and the Battle of the Bulge. During the fight around Bastogne Jackson was wounded when, on Christmas day, his unit engaged a German Tiger tank, necessitating his evacuation to England for medical care. Quite a story! Come hear it recounted by this decorated WWII combat veteran at our September meeting. For more details of Smoyer’s service see his press release in the Speaker Press Release section on this website.
As always our meetings are open to all free of charge. Except for a small amount to cover expenses, the funds raised through book sales, and the free-will offering taken at the end of the meeting, are donated to charities selected by the Board of Directors. Check out the organizations that we, and you, support by viewing the “Charitable Contributions” page on this website.
