Back by popular demand! Join us for an evening with retired USMC Colonel Tom Duhs, to hear the incredible story of the 10th Mountain Division. “Skiing off to War” is the story of the troops who trained at Camp Hale Colorado, and were deployed to Italy in WWII. 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 this a fascinating presentation you won't want to miss.

Event is FREE and open to the public. All ages welcome! No sign up is necessary.

**Volunteers are not needed at this event**
