Description

Sal Serio, curator of our American Italian Research Library, will tell the story of Lt. Wesley Richard of Metairie, Louisiana. Lt. Richard was Killed in Action in Sabaudia, Italy*, when his plane was shot down and how a farm community took him into their hearts in spite of the area being occupied by German forces. This is an ongoing story that covers from that fateful date in 1943 until the present.

*Sabaudia, Italy is a town near Anzio, Italy.

The lecture is free for AICC Members and students with a valid university or high school ID.

For non-members, the suggested donation is $10.
