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.
The presentation will be introduced by Tommy Coohill, Commander of the East Brunswick VFW Post. The free program is co-sponsored by VFW Post 133 and The Library.
