    A documentary was recently produced about Chicago's Navy Pier and the role of this historic landmark in America's effort in World War II. It is called Heroes On Deck: World War II On Lake Michigan, and tomorrow I'll be attending a panel discussion at the Pritzker Military Museum about the film. According to the write-up on the talk: "Captain Dave Truitt, WWII veteran Herb Sohn, and restoration specialist Jonathan Toby Mack visit the Museum & Library in a panel discussion about the ingenious training program that changed the course of the war in the Pacific and the making of this original documentary."

    I'll be posting photos and comments afterwards, and I'll add any new content I can to our growing archive at WW2|ORG.

    I think it's fitting way to spend the 6th of June.

    They live-streamed, but I was only able to catch the tail end. However, the video is now up on their Youtube channel. Watch and enjoy:
