Member Meeting October 2018

Author Jeane Slone on Female War Correspondents in WWII

Our monthly Member Meetings typically include updates on important Museum news, a raffle, video presentations, a chance to visit with other Museum members, snacks, and a presentation by a featured speaker. Speakers may include military Veterans, historians, civic leaders, and other people with interesting stories to tell of their historical research or their aviation or military experiences.

October 17, 2018: 1 Author Jeane Slone on Female War Correspondents in WWII

There were 127 brave World War II female war correspondents, who went above and beyond to capture the events of the war to inform the people on the home front. These women fought against condemnation and hostility from male officers in order to perform their jobs, and proved time and again that they were equal to male reporters. Jeane Slone, author and PCAM member, will show slides of the adventures of women photographers in several theaters of war.
