DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

Information from The City of Douglas

Douglas is looking for letters from World War II to be considered for the production of War Bonds: The Songs and Letters of World War II.

In honor of Veteran's Day, the City of Douglas, American Legion Post 18 and American Legion Post 515 have joined together to present War Bonds: The Songs and Letters of World War II.

It takes place Saturday, November 10, 2012, 4:00pm at the Martin Centre.

"We are asking for letters or memories from local World War II veterans," says Georgia Henderson, Central Services Director. "These letters may possibly be used as a part of the War Bonds production."

Using music and personal letters from the front and headline news of the period, award winning artists, David zum Brunnen and Serena Ebhardt fill the stage with wartime memories and sentimental tunes.
