As president of this GREAT organization I would like to extend a welcome to all people interested in preserving our military history.
This organization was formed in 1987 and has since grown to one of the most active in the state.
Each month we invite speakers who either have a military background or expertise in military matters.
Our guest speakers have included former Indiana Gov. Whitcomb, who was captured at Corregidor and escaped; General Paul Tibbets, who dropped the atomic bomb on Japan; George Gay, the only survivor from Torpedo Squadron 8 at the Battle of Midway; and, Indianapolis Mayor Ballard, who has been our guest speaker and presented WWII medals to our Roundtable members. Other speakers include survivors of Iwo Jima, Normandy and the Pearl Harbor attack; and, veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
To join our group you do not have to have served in the military. Many of our members are military enthusiasts, or children of veterans who enjoy being a part of preserving our military history.
If you have an interest in military history and this great country, then you’ll enjoy the WWII roundtable

GREAT PROGRAMS FROM THE WWII ROUNDTABLE

May 19th (note the date change because of Memorial day) Dr. J. Brown, professor at the Army War College in Leavenworth, KS. He is one of the country's leading authorities on the military actions of Germany during WWII.
June 23—Bob Reynolds - WWII RAF pilot in British Lancaster Bombers. Bob grew up in a typical middle class suburb of London. From an early age he was interested in flying. In 1939 he volunteered for flying duties with the Royal Air Force on his eighteenth birthday. His education at Willesden Technical College was interrupted by the outbreak of war and he was called up to begin his flight training during the Battle of Britain. After receiving his pilot's wings he was selected to be a flying instructor. Before the war was over he became proficient flying nine different types of aircraft including the Lancaster heavy bomber and the C47. After the war in Europe he was assigned to OPERATION TIGERFORCE training to fly Lancaster bombers alongside the American B-29 bomber offensive hitting Japan around the clock, an operation that was cancelled with the dropping of the Atomic bombs. In October 1945, he flew one of the first Allied bombers to land in Berlin.
Bob founded Valor Tours, a tour organization that specializes in tours to take WW II veterans back to the battlefields where they fought. Bob has been all over the world to all of the battlefields of both the Pacific and European theaters, including 86 times to the Philippines.
He has been very involved in the preservation of Pacific Island battlefields including Corregidor, and has been involved in the site selection and fabrication for over forty memorials to American units in the Pacific including the American War Memorial at Guadalcanal and the American POW Memorial at Cabanatuan in the Philippines.
At 93 he enjoys robust health and continues to travel with his wife, Betty. Thanks to Dr. Shively for arranging this program.
July 28th. Ed Bensman. He’ll be telling about his experiences in Vietnam. Truly some of the most heart wrenching stories ever told at our roundtable. Stories of combat fighting and saving of orphan children that will bring tears to your eyes.
