Living history: WWII heroes recognized in documentary and dinner by California Federation of Republican Women

Veterans' advocate Bob Donovan introduces Larry DeCuir to Michael Reagan
A number of World War II veterans of Southern California received recognition early this summer, when California's Thousand Oaks Republican Women Federated (led by Beatrice Resifo and Rosemary Licata) hosted a dinner "Honoring the Heroes of World War II."

Reagan Foundation leader, Michael Reagan, the eldest son of President Ronald Reagan, and his colleagues, producer Jay Hoffman and director Doug Stebleton screened and discussed their documentary film "Heroes of World War II." Some of the Normandy Invasion and the South Pacific vets told their stories in the movie. Their stories and those of other vets there were read aloud to applause.
