Paul Marshall, author of Maine Boy Goes to War

Maine Boy Goes to WarIn honor of Veterans Day, Paul Marshall of Hope will talk about his World War II service at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday November 11. Marshall grew up in Patten but encountered a very different world in war-time Europe, where he served as a combat medic with a rifle platoon for three years. His memoir, A Maine Boy Goes to War, describes the life-changing experiences of Marshall and the “boys” in his unit, as well as his later family life as an educational Christian missionary in the Pacific islands of Micronesia. Now 91 years old, Marshall is a retired United Methodist minister who has served several churches in Midcoast Maine. This program is co-sponsored by Union Historical Society. There is no charge and refreshments will be served.
