Battle of the Bulge to be remembered

Anyone with good knowledge of America’s fortunes in world wars can tell you that the bloodiest and most costly campaign ever fought by American forces took place in the frigid and deep forests during the Second World War. January will mark the 68th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. That costly, but pivotal fight for America and its allies will be remembered during a program next month in Walhalla. Everyone 12 years of age and older is invited to the Walhalla Library at 2:30 Sunday afternoon, January 27 to explore and relive the battlefields of WWII, with special emphasis on the Battle of the Bulge. All WWII veterans across the county who had anything to do with the battle are asked to contact the Oconee Veterans Affairs Office, so that a place on the program may be reserved for them. “From the Ardennes Forests to St. Vith to Bastogne, our men faced some of the most unimaginable conditions ever endured,” said Dyar.
