Info

South Windsor Public Library will have a special guest speaker from the Destroyer Escort Historical Museum--USS Slater DE766 at our Booked for Lunch program. Charles Starks will present "Heroes All Around Us." This program explores the fascinating history of destroyer escorts, the USS SLATER and the lives of three men who served in the United States Navy during World War II and who are tied in some way to these trim but deadly warships.The USS Slater, docked on the Albany waterfront, is the only World War II-era destroyer escort still afloat and the only one in existence with its original battle armament. Launched in 1944 and named after Alabama sailor Frank O. Slater, killed during the Battle of Guadalcanal in 1942, the Slater saw service in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans during World War II. Bring your lunch; the Friends of the Library will supply beverages and desserts.
