Connecticut Connections to World War II
with Phil Devlin

This presentation focuses on stories related to Connecticut residents who fought in the second world war from 1941-1945. Few people realize that of the over 9,000 Americans buried in the famous American cemetery in Normandy 3 are women, and 2 of those women were from Connecticut! Few also realize that the highest ranking American general killed in the war was heroic General Maurice Rose of Middletown, CT, who served under General George Patton. The interesting stories of the 6 Fuller brothers from Suffield who served in the war is also part of the presentation, as is the story of Ulmont Whitehead of Hartford, killed aboard the USS Arizona during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
