B-17 Veteran Relates WWII Experiences
Speaker: Mr. Ralph Holding
A local gent, who is 91 years young, will recount tales of his life as a B-17 crew chief in the Pacific Theater during the WWII. He deployed with his Group from SLC to Hawaii and on to Australia, pending a move on to the Philippines to join their aircraft. While in the Land Down Under, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and the Philippines, forcing them to operate out of Australia and Java for the war effort. This veteran will keep you spellbound!
