One Veteran's Memories

It's Veterans Day and the library will be open from 11-6 today.  Remember to call or thank a veteran today for their service to our country.  We've interviewed many local veterans in the past few years as part of our oral history program here at the library.  Early in September we spoke with Albert H. Davis, a long-time New City resident and veteran of World War II.  In the clip below he recalls some of his first experiences in action during World War II.
