The first movie of the WWII series was excellent. I can say this because it kept me interested through every bit of the movie. With scenes of the battlefield as they are in present day, then flashing back to the actual battle, I got a sense of being there. The addition of veterans who actually participated in these battles added to the experience. Also I might add that these films are closed-captioned for the hearing- impaired so you can read what the narrator is saying. The Americans on Hell’s Highway showing will be Tuesday, August 14, 2012 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm and a second showing will be Saturday, August 18, 2012 from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm. Length of movie 60 minutes. The movie is free and open for viewing by everyone.

The museum has been working hard, but we need for everyone to come by and collect their WWII pictures, relics and memorabilia. If you do not want your stuff back, please speak to Linda Howard and let her know. Linda is at the museum from 11 am to 3 pm getting ready for the new exhibit.

Were you able to answer the questions the museum posed in the last issue of the newspaper? Well, here is the answer to question 1: The endeavor that set the image of Texas for the nation was the cattle drives, because from these drives came the cowboy, a romantic image of the tough, rough, strong, woman’s champion, who led a lonely life on the range with his horse as his companion.
