EAST BRUNSWICK, New Jersey – Many people think they “know” World War II from childhood recollections, history books and/or the many fictionalized films and books set during the war. Visit the East Brunswick Public Library on Thursday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m. and hear the nonfiction versions—the first-person versions—from soldiers who served.

Captain Samson is a WWII Navy artist whose work is displayed in the US Capitol Building. He will share both his drawings and his stories.

Frank Russo is a highly-decorated WWII Army vet whose honors include the Silver Star. He will talk about his experiences serving in Europe and share personal artifacts.
