Saturday, May 3 at 2 p.m.
Join us for a special screening of D Day: Normandy 1944 at 2 p.m., followed by an on-stage conversation between lawyer-philanthropist Frank Denius and Dr. Tom Hatfield about World War II. Denius landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy shortly after the initial landing on June 6, 1944, fought in every major campaign until the war ended eleven months later, earning four Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts. He is one of the most decorated soldiers of the war. Hatfield is an internationally recognized military historian who directs the Military History Institute in UT's Briscoe Center for American History. You will also get a sneak peek of On the Way, Denius' soon-to-be published memoir co-written with Hatfield.
