Town Historian Jack Authelet presents "Foxborough In World War II"
The Society is pleased to have Jack Authelet join us again to begin this year's presentation season. The future of many Foxborough residents
changed on December 7, 1941 with the attack on Pearl Harbor. Jack will discuss the men and women who soon went off to war, those
that flocked to defense plants to help make items for the war, and the community effort to aid in the war effort any way possible. Jack will share
the personal stories of Foxborough residents from December 7th 1941 to the VJ Day and later efforts to create a memorial
for soldiers that fought and died during the war.
