Author Ronald May will stop into Black Dog Books for a book-signing event from 1-3 p.m., Feb. 18. May’s book, “Our Service, Our Stories” tells the service stories of 36 World War II veterans from Central Indiana. May is the Chaplain at Hoosier Village Retirement Community in Zionsville and lives in Carmel. Of the 16 million service members who fought in WWII, it’s estimated that only 855,000 are still alive today. Those survivors are dying at a rate of almost 500 a day.
According to May, the rush is on to capture as many of their stories as possible while they are still alive. In “Our Service, Our Stories” the 36 Indiana veterans recall their experiences of military service during WWII – what they saw, heard, said, felt and did May will speak at 1:30 p.m. and then take questions.
WWII veteran, Paul Maves will accompany May.
Black Dog Books is at 115 S. Main Street in Zionsville. The event is free.
