Brutus Salutes Our Veterans

Brutus is preparing to salute our veterans, especially those who fought in World War II, next week (May 17th at 6:30 p.m. in Owosso).  He is anxious to hear Larry Martin's presentation in the veteran's own words.  He has also been doing some reading about Pearl Harbor and D-Day.  He heard that there will be a nurse here talking about her experiences, too. 

He has lots of questions about the role of dogs in the war, and Margaret showed him a website about the Marine Corps dogs; he was surprised (and sad) to learn that some of his cousins were killed in battle.

For more information on Martin's program, visit his website, 

Also, staff  have informed Brutus that there were only 48 stars in the U.S. flag during the war.  He's never seen a flag without 50 stars.  If anyone has a small 48 star flag, he'd love to have you bring it so that he could have his picture taken with it!
