    February 2016

    During the month of February the Artifact of the Month will be a parachute fragment from B Company of the 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment. You  will find this artifact in the rotunda of the main lobby for the entire month. On February 20th and 21st, 2016 from 11am to 1pm and noon to 2pm (respectively) Author of “A Dusty Boot Soldier Remembers” COL (Ret) Larry Redmond will be at the ASOM for a book signing.

     

    Looking ahead:  Douglas Waller author of “Disciples” will be here on March 5th, 2016 11am to 1pm. We have hosted Douglas before for his “Wild Bill Donovan”. Both books deal with the OSS from World War II. “Disciples” tells the story of four secret OSS warriors and their daring espionage an sabotage in wartime Europe. “Disciples” is a must read according to General (Retired) James Lindsay the first CINC of SOCOM and Chairman of the Board for the ASOM Foundation.

     

    “The First To Jump” book signing by author Jerome Preisler has been rescheduled and will be on March 12, 2016 from 11am to 1pm. A great look at the Pathfinders and their role in World War II.
