The WCPL Local History Center is excited to show the WGTE documentary, “A Soldier’s Story: Never Forgotten” on Saturday, November 9th at 10:00 am.
Like many communities during World War II, Hardin County, Ohio was devastated by casualties. Nine of Hardin County’s greatest perished while fighting in the South Pacific to take control of a Japanese airstrip in the Solomon Islands. In “A Soldier’s Story: Never Forgotten,” family members of the fallen and experts on the Battle of Munda Point explore the tragedy, address the devastating effects it had on the Hardin County community, and discuss what sacrifice and patriotism really means, in hopes that these nine men, in addition to all those who perished will never be forgotten.
“A Soldier’s Story: Never Forgotten” will be shown in the Bryan Main Library Carnegie Room, located at 107 E. High Street, and is FREE to attend. This program is in conjunction with WGTE Public Media. The Local History Center is located on the northeastern corner of High and Main Streets in Bryan, Ohio.
