93 year old WW II vet to speak at Legion meeting

Friday, April 29, 2016

The public is invited to the Tuesday, May 3 meeting of the Post 227 American Legion, to hear 93 year old Jack Bodé speak of his experiences in WW II.

Jack lived a storied life. He walked on many continents while experiencing exciting and near death experiences. 
He will tell how he was rejected from enlisting in the US Army as an infantryman in 1942 and told to go back to Ohio State University to continue his technical work on the war effort.
This led to adventures beyond what any 19 year old could fathom. 
All military veterans, their guests and all who are interested in military history are welcome to come to hear how Jack made it all happen.

The meeting will be held at Post 227, 14521 17th Avenue NE, located at the corner of NE 146th St and 17th Ave NE in Shoreline 98155.

Mr. Bodé was originally scheduled to speak at the April 5th meeting, but was injured in a fall. Now recovered, he will be making his original presentation on Tuesday.

A social meet and greet time is held from 6:30pm to 7:00pm. The meeting starts at 7:00pm sharp and refreshments will served after the meeting.
