Sterling Scholars Veterans Day Invitation at the Fairfield Bay Community Education Center

On Wednesday, November 11 1pm-2pm  Naval historian and author John Lambert returns to Fairfield Bay to present his documentation on the U.S.S. Independence aircraft carrier.  Built expressively for battle in the pacific theater of World War II, the ship and her air squadrons saw action against the Japanese, was used as a target in the nuclear bomb testing in the Bikini Atoll after the war, and then was sunk in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of San Francisco in 1951.  Rediscovered in the spring of 2015, the author was a participant in the search and location of this historic ship of war.  $10 – FREE FOR VETERANS
