**PLEASE NOTE: Due to an illness, our previously scheduled speaker, Bud Anderson, is unable to join us in June. We wish him the best, and a speedy recovery. In his place will be:
Dr. Steven Sidebotham- Steven Sidebothanm, a history professor at the University of Delaware, has spent countless hours over two decades interviewing WWII veterans. At our June meeting Steven will share a collection of stories from Marines who fought in the battle Iwo Jima. We are very appreciative and excited to be welcoming back Professor Sidebotham for what promises to be a memorable evening. See more regarding Sidebotham in his May 2019 press release.
POSTPONED, RESCHEDULE DATE TBD. Col. Clarence E. “Bud” Anderson- Col. Anderson, a highly decorated WWII P-51 fighter pilot, served two combat tours escorting heavy bombers over Europe, recorded 16 “kills” of enemy aircraft, and earned the distinction of becoming a triple ace. From November 1943 through January 1945, Bud flew 116 combat missions, while never taking a hit from the enemy. Anderson was awarded two Legion of Merits, five Distinguished Flying Crosses, a Bronze Star, sixteen Air Medals, and the French Legion of Honor and Croix de Guerre. Additionally, he was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame and was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. Following his WWII service, Bud became a jet fighter test pilot for the Air Force. At age 99, Anderson is the only surviving triple ace from WWII. Simply amazing! Join us as we hear of the actions and life of this true American hero. More information on Col. Anderson and his presentation can be found in his press release in the “Press Release Page” on this website. We look forward to zooming with you!
