Join us for an evening with Colonel Tom Duhs USMC (retired) to hear the incredible story of the 10th Mountain Division. “Skiing off to War” is the story of the 10th Mountain Division, who trained at Camp Hale Colorado, and were deployed to Italy. They pushed the German Army out of Italy bringing about the end of the war in May of 1945. The unique nature of the only US Army Mountain Division, it’s recruitment, training, employment, and work after WWII makes the fascinating story of “The Ski Troops.”
