Austin, Texas Exhibit ran through September 2014
THIS EXHIBIT IS NOW CLOSED
Two of the men who fought in history’s biggest maritime invasion commemorated its 70th anniversary in front of the largest movie screen in Texas. D-Day veterans Robert Bearden, author and former POW, and Johnny Marino participated in a panel discussion following a screening of the new IMAX film “D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944.”
Sponsored by the Texas VLB’s Voices of VeteransTM oral history program, the event was on June 6 at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, 1800 N. Congress Ave. The panel, featuring the two veterans, took place immediately following the movie.
The Voices of Veterans also had an interactive display. At the display, visitors could hear and see the stories of a selection of Texas combat veterans who have shared their stories through the program, including a D-Day veteran.
The Voices of Veterans exhibit was at the Bullock Museum through September 2014.
