Author will speak about local Battle of the Bulge soldiers on May 25

The LaPorte County Historical Society Museum will host author Barry J. Veden on Saturday, May 25, 2019, at 1 p.m. in the museum meeting room. Veden, who wrote “My Heroes: The Men of Northern Indiana Chapter XXX Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge,” will talk about the battle and his personal connection to it: his father, Edward Veden, who was seriously injured in the epic fight. 

“My Heroes” contains interviews with more than 30 northern Indiana World War II veterans who survived the largest land battle ever fought by the U.S. Army. Veden will be selling copies of his book after the presentation. In 1997, Veden was named editor of The Bulge Battle News, a publication for WWII veterans.
