Major General John K. Singlaub, U.S. Army (Ret) will be speaking about his illustrious career in the military. While serving our country in World War II, his duties included a parachute mission into occupied France to train and lead the French Resistance. His rescue mission on China’s Hainan Island led to the release of 400 Allied Prisoners of War. He served two tours during the Korean War and also served in Vietnam.
Throughout the General’s 35-year military career, he was awarded 45 military decorations, including the Distinguished Service Medal, Silver Star Medal, Legion of Merit, and the Purple Heart. He was awarded combat decorations from 6 foreign countries. Following an investigation of “war crimes,” the Department of the Army awarded his unit a “Presidential Unit Citation.”
General Singlaub’s outstanding story is chronicled in his autobiography, Hazardous Duty – An American Solider in the Twentieth Century, published by Simon & Shuster. We are extremely proud to be presenting this event. Tom Lawrence of WAKM radio will be the moderator and interviewer. Do not miss the opportunity to meet one of the greatest from “America’s Greatest Generation”.
