someone with you! Our program will include two "A-Team"
speakers from the World War II Museum: New Orleans native and
war veteran Bert Stolier and Ronnie Aboud, museum volunteer
and speaker coordinator.
Bert Stolier joined the Marines in 1940, was present at Pearl
Harbor, witnessed the Dolittle Raid launch from the USS Hornet,
the Battles of Midway, Makin Island, and Guadalcanal, survived
for 2 days in the water after being shot down, waded ashore at
Tarawa, and landed on sands of Iwo Jima. He was on the deck of
the USS Missouri when Japan surrendered. As a tribute to our
veterans, come listen to Bert’s fascinating and personal story.
