Crossroads of Pintlala's past and future.

Meeting Date


 

Pintlala Historical Association Meeting

The PHA will meet on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 2:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Pintlala Baptist Church.

The program will feature Thomas Chesnutt, ninety-six year old World War II veteran. Thomas is a native of Pintlala and remembers EVERYTHING!  Join us for an interview of Thomas and discussion of his memories of serving on the destroyer, U.S.S. Fletcher. I think you will find his experiences and his commitment to our country inspiring. (Tom is pictured on the left with his wife Betty)

 

If anyone is interested in the book, Tin Can Titans: The Heroic Men and Ships of World War II’s Most Decorated Navy Destroyer Squadron, mentioned in the July, 2017 PHA newsletter, it is available on Amazon.com.  Thomas could sign it if you purchase one and bring it to the October meeting. He is mentioned more than twenty times by author John F. Wukovits.


Please join us—if you have been “away” for a time, turn a new fall leaf and attend! Your membership and support are truly important.
