Dan Hurley Shares his Father’s World War II Military Experience

May 26, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us on Tuesday, May 26 at noon to hear Cincinnati’s beloved Dan Hurley share stories about his father during World War II and his quest to uncover his father’s story, a white officer with an all African American company that was led by a Jewish Captain in the heart of the home of the Nazi movement. Hurley is writing a book about the hundreds of letters his father sent to his mother during the war, including the letter featured as the Artifact of the Month!
