Veterans’ Memorial Hall, a program of the St. Louis County Historical Society, which also puts on Lunch With The History People, announces its next event in the local history discussion series, “History in a Pint.” The presentation, entitled “The Navy Hospital Corpsman’s Charges: Marines, Sailors & Seals”, will take place at Grandma’s Saloon & Restaurant, in the Sand Bar.

The event is expected to take place at 6 pm and will be presented by life-long Duluth resident and community organizer Neill Atkins. He will discuss the life of a Navy Corpsman in the early seventies during the Vietnam War. Mr. Atkins attended the University of Minnesota, Duluth, was active in community improvements and growth, is a major contributor to the Leif Erikson Viking Ship Restoration Project, and was a leader in the construction of the Northland Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Lakewalk.

Veterans’ Memorial Hall was established in 1910 and is a joint program of the St. Louis County Historical Society and the military service veterans of northeastern Minnesota with a mission to gather, preserve, interpret, and promote the rich and diverse human experiences of veterans, their families and communities, through museum, archival and educational programs. Its website, www.vets-hall.org, features more than 6,000 veteran stories.
