Heroes All Around Us
Join us from 7 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6, as we explore the fascinating history of destroyer escorts and the lives of three men who served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and are tied in some way to these trim but deadly warships.
The first is Frank Slater, killed in action at Guadalcanal and for whom the USS Slater is named. The second, Leonard Roy Harmon, who also lost his life and would receive the posthumous distinction of being the first African American to have a ship named in his honor. Finally, the remarkable story of a destroyer escort, the USS Samuel B. Roberts will be examined, highlighting the actions of Paul Henry Carr.
