Camp Hearne Diary, October 24, 2010

Wow! We had a special opening called "A Day in the Life..." yesterday. It was great! The Bryan/College Station article really helped to get out the word.

Fortunately, they came back for the event and wrote a Sunday article and placed some great photos and video on their website

Who was the star attraction?? Hard to say. Drs. Waters and Krammer are always well received. Everyone wanted to see Heino Erichsen, the former POW. J.B. Cheaney was great at storytelling. The barrack was pretty cool as well. The exhibit room surprised a lot of people. But then, there were the GIs out back. The WWII re-enactors, G-Company from Camp Mabry in Austin, surely had every one's attention with their weapons demonstration. I think they all are super stars.

I am waiting for photographs from TAMU students who were working on their class projects. Will post as soon as they are available. Until then, check out The Eagle.
