D-Day vets to speak at movie screening
Two of the men who fought in the D-Day invasion will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the decisive battle in front of the largest movie screen in Texas on Friday, June 6, at 2 p.m. in the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum at 1800 N. Congress Ave. in Austin.
World War II veterans Robert Bearden, author and former POW, and fellow soldier Johnny Marino will participate in a panel following a screening of the new IMAX film, “D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944.” The discussion is open to the public.
There will also be an interactive Voices of Veterans display near the theater exit where moviegoers can hear the actual recorded recollections of combat veterans from World War II to Iraq and learn more about the fight to preserve their stories for future generations.
Reservations are required at http://bit.ly/DdayTix. Though the movie is free to all veterans and active military personnel, admission charges apply to the general public.
For more information, call 512-936-4649.
