Help honor WWII Veterans

4/15/2014

The landing of military troops on the beaches of Normandy took place nearly 70 years ago. Beginning June 6, 1944, thousands of troops invaded German army-controlled France in waves by amphibious landing and by airborne assault. Thousands of American troops lost their lives in this successful endeavor to gain control of the north shore of France.

Seventy years later in Finney County, the senior center is reaching out to anyone who served in the military during World War II. We would like to honor you and commemorate this occasion with a luncheon on June 7. If you are a World War II vet or know one, please call Barbara at 272-3620. We need your help in identifying all WWII vets in Finney County. Please help us reach out to these fine people.

Thanks for help
