January 16, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Guest Speaker: Sgt. Manuel Reyes

92-year-old Sgt. Manuel Reyes shared his many experiences in World War II from the underbelly of a B-26 Maurader bomber. His crew was responsible for bring down a German Messerschmitt fighter during a raid over Sicily in 1943.

Sgt. Reyes not only told us about his WWII experiences, but he had documents, military artifacts and medals he shared with us.

Sgt. Reyes had over 25 members of his family in attendance and they were all very proud and appreciated the opportunity for him to share his story with so many people.

Sgt. Manuel Reyes was introduced by Ronnie Holiday.
