George Gaadt and D-Day, 6/6/16

What a marvelous time was had with George Gaadt as our guest speaker for D-Day, June 6, 2016!  Could there be any better presenter? It’s doubtful, as George loves military history and is always willing to share it with others.


He’s a wonderful researcher and combines his incredible artistic talents as a famous illustrator with his world-wide collections and we all become the richer for it!  Let these photos speak for themselves!

George’s subject was focused on one particular man who made world history on D-Day:  Nicholas Russin of Lyndora, Pennsylvania, from near Butler, an unknown PFC in the famous WWII photo for many years, who was rescued by his friends after he had saved the lives of so many others.


There could be no better place to be this June 6, 2016, D-Day at Moon Township’s Municipal Building.  We had a full house of members and guests.
