December 11th, 7:30 pm at the Congregational Church

Ball Turret gunner's position in the belly of a B17 bomber.AMHERST – Please join the Historical Society of Amherst and local author Bob Korkuc for the slide-show presentation of the story behind his book, “Finding a Fallen Hero: The Death of a Ball Turret Gunner,” which was declared a “riveting story” by renowned PBS documentary producer Ken Burns.

This free, public program will be held on Monday, December 11th at 7:30 pm at the Congregational Church of Amherst on the Village Green.

Bob spent seven years on a quest to discover the true story of his uncle Tony Korkuc, who was killed during a B-17 Flying Fortress bombing mission on February 25, 1944. Military documents, letters, and interviews with both surviving airmen and German civilians helped Korkuc solve a family mystery and tell a riveting war story in the process.

All are welcome to this free event and refreshments will be served so please join the Historical Society on December 11!
