Central Pennsylvania WWII Roundtable

Upcoming Speakers
Join us in making history come alive!

August 1, 2019
Charles Brooking- Charles served on a PT boat (short for patrol torpedo), a torpedo-armed fast-strike U.S. Navy vessel used to attack Japanese ships during WWII. Brooking saw combat action near the Solomon Islands and Guadalcanal. Manning a .50 caliber machine gun on a number of PT boats, he was able to shoot down a Japanese Zero during on of his missions. Following the war Charles served an additional eight years in the Navy reserves. This is a very rare chance to hear what life and combat was like on one of the Navy’s smallest combat ships. Be sure to join us at our August meeting as Charles shares his remarkable story with us. For more details of Brooking’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.
