Lecture Series – Invasion Stripes : The Wartime Diary of Captain Uhrig
March 12, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The next segment in our Lecture Series. A sometimes hilarious, sometimes tragic, detailed first person story of Captain Uhrig. Captain Uhrig was a WWII aircraft mechanic and then Engineering Officer for the 36th Troop Carrier Squadron and their Douglas C-47s.
Captain Uhrig’s wartime career took him from jump school at Ft. Benning to supplying British units in North Africa to the Sicily and Normandy (D-Day) invasions and all the other airborne operations in Europe.
The lecture also includes his personal love story. As Captain Uhrig endures almost three years of wartime separation from his love, with only photographs and letters to sustain them across thousands of miles.
