Normandy Invasion veterans wanted
If you took part in the invasion of Normandy, the Montpelier Cultural Arts Center in Laurel is looking for you and any old photos you may possess.
The center is planning a photo exhibit in June to salute the 50th anniversary of the Normandy landing and the events that followed. The display will include old photographs, recent snapshots and short biographies of military and civilian participants in the historic event.
Biographies should contain rank, primary duties, time of service, unit, date and place of Normandy landing, war record before and after the invasion, and three closest friends who shared this experience with you. Information on postwar work and immediate family should also be included.
Photos and biographies can be sent to Montpelier Cultural Arts Center, Normandy exhibit, 12826 Laurel-Bowie Road, Laurel 20708. Information: (301) 953-1993 or 792-0664.
