World War II history explored

WAG introduced its readers to the National Maritime Historical Society last autumn though a profile on its president, Burchenal Green.
We heard all about the Peekskill-based organization’s preservation and educational efforts, which we shared in a November story.
And we’ve just learned of a lecture it will host later this month, open to the public as part of its Charles Point Council Lecture Series.
Author and Naval historian Craig L. Symonds will speak on “Operation Neptune: The Allied Invasion of Europe and the D-Day Landings” on Sept. 24 at the Hendrick Hudson Free Library in Montrose.

He will share from his book on the Normandy landings of the Allied invasion during World War II (code named Operation Neptune).
The program will begin with coffee and registration at 10:30 a.m., followed by the lecture at 11. (The suggested donation is $5 to $10.) The library is at 185 Kings Ferry Road.

After the lecture, the NMHS will host a luncheon. The cost is $25, with reservations and advance payment required.
