“Skiing off to War: 10th Mountain Division in WWII” Presented by Colonel Tom Duhs (Retired)
Explore the story of the 10th Mountain Division, which trained at Camp Hale, near Leadville, Colorado, from 1942-1944. Deployed to Italy, they pushed the German Army out, bringing about the end of the war in May 1945. The unique nature of the only US Army Mountain Division, its recruitment, training, employment, and work after the war is truly fascinating. After the lecture, join us from 4:00-5:00PM in the Schoolhouse Museum for a book signing of Tom’s book Sempe Avanti and a light reception with live music by Craig Clark.
Join us après ski for the winter lecture series featuring 8 educational presentations held at the Historic Park Log Chapel every Wednesday at 3PM. Seating is limited – please arrive early! Contact the Museum for more information on lecture topics: 970-668-3428
