Special Events for a Generation Defined by World War II
Tom Brokaw calls it “The Greatest Generation,” but however we collectively identify them, the men and women of Albright classes from 1938 to 1952 are part of a generation defined by the war that engaged the nations. This year, we extend a special invitation to these alumni to take part in several special events commemorating World War II.

Honor the Sixtieth Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

From December 3 to 5, 2001 Albright College, in cooperation with the Blue and Gray Education Society, will participate in a symposium and extensive tour of the sites related to December 7th, 1941.

Tour sites include Kahuku Point, Haleiwa airfield, Aloha Tower, Schofield Barracks and Wheeler Field. Travelers will also see Hickam Field, home of the original aircraft hangars, and the base operations that were attacked. You’ll then move on to see the enlisted dormitory, riddled with shell and strafe marks, and Ford Island – ground zero!

Morning lectures will cover “The Spread of Japanese Hegemony in the Pacific” by Dan Mortensen of the USAF’s Air University, “Tora, Tora, Tora – the Attack on Oahu” by author Carl Smith (Pearl Harbor), and “Was it Really a Surprise Attack?” by the US Naval Academy’s Bob Love.

The program has limited seating and reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. An inclusive package will include airfare from the West Coast, and based upon responses, arrangements from some East Coast departure points may be made.

You may add days to the package at the group rate. Full details about cost and registration forms are available from BGES.

Call toll free 888-741-2437 or e-mail blue-grayedsoc@mindspring.com. Make sure to identify yourself with the Albright group.
