Veterans Day discussion featured at Driftwood Library

Posted: Friday, Nov 9th, 2012

This Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11, Driftwood Public Library will host a panel discussion of local veterans who worked in radio and information services in the military. The discussion will take place at 3 p.m. in the library’s community room and is open to the public.

A former U.S. Army broadcast specialist, a U.S. Air Force information specialist and a U.S. Air Force public affairs officer will share stories ranging from humorous radio antics and managing UFO reports to their roles in more serious events during the 1970s and ‘80s. Broadcast specialist and local radio personality Roger Robertson will describe his experiences in Germany with the Armed Forces Radio Network and will play some studio recordings from that time. Information Specialist Lori Ann Sheridan, who is now active in women’s veteran affairs, will share stories of moose and UFOs in Maine, and Public Affairs Officer G. “Mick” McLean will describe memorable moments from his time at Florida Air Force Base, as well as stories from two tours of Vietnam and from his final assignment with Armed Forces Radio and Television Services (AFRTS) in Canada.
