3rd Army Division in WW II
Featured speaker will be Charles Robert (Bob) Harmon. A speaker with 60 years of experience teaching history at Seattle University, he will tell fascinating stories about serving in General Patton’s 3rd Army, being at the Battle of the Bulge, taking German prisoners at the Seigfried Line, and seeing artwork stolen by the Nazis as featured in the movie, Monuments Men.

He has spoken at many venues around the world, including the U.S. military academies. All veterans and members of the community are welcome to come to hear him speak.

While you are at the meeting, you can check out the new Post Library that includes a large collection of militarily related books, video tapes and DVDs. Any of these can be checked out, used and returned by post members without charge. Also check out the Post 227 website.

A brief intermission for refreshments after the talk will allow visitors to depart. Post 227 members are urged to stay for the post meeting that will follow the intermission.
