Memories of An Ambulance Driver

September 12, 2022 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Instructor: Judy Bruckner

Participants in this course will step back to 1917 into the shoes of a fatherless 19-year-old experiencing the perils of war behind the wheel of his “Little Garlic” Ford. Charles Leonard entered WWI as a volunteer for the American Field Service. His diary, letters home, and photos recall his harrowing experiences during the Great War. Judy Bruckner, his granddaughter, realized these artifacts were a side of the war that few can read about. She compiled everything in a book to share with all. She will include stories, photos, and artifacts from WWI.
