Keeping the Memories Alive
A presentation by Vernon Chandler

Location: Medford Public Library at 111 High Street

Date & Time: Thursday, June 1, 2023 at 7 PM

This event is free and open to the public. All welcome!

Join us for an evening full of history, near and far. Hamilton resident Vern Chandler will share his extraordinary journey in the footsteps of his relatives that participated in World War II. Among them is Private Kenneth E. Miller of Medford. He gave his life in defense of freedom and he never returned home. He is memorialized overseas and a local family has adopted the grave of this fallen American liberator. Mr. Chandler will share the details of this native son and his two-week tour across Europe to keep the memory of the Greatest Generation.
