Member Stephen Manning to speak at veterans program Saturday, Nov. 14

Stephen Manning will be speaking about his experiences interviewing Texas World War II veterans at the Irving Public Library at 2 p.m. this Saturday. This is a great chance to hear some of the incredible stories from his non-fiction books, The Courage of Common Men and Texans Touched by World War II. Manning interviewed veterans and family members around the state of Texas to collect their memories of the war years.

The Irving Pipe and Drum Honor Guard will perform several numbers, and then Manning will speak. Bob Moffatt will also talk about the Irving Memorial Park Commemorative Brick Program.

Refreshments will be served after the program.
