        We were honored to have Lieutenant Arthur Staymates ( Retired ) join us as our speaker for the evening. Mr. Staymates spoke on happenings during his time in the European theater of World War Two. He related stories of the Normandy Invasion and battles throughout Germany and France. Prior to his leaving Europe, he was assigned the position of Head of the Guard for the war crimes trials where he was responsible for such notable prisoners as Hermann Goering and Rudolf Hess.
          We enjoyed a lovely Christmas Dinner with all the fix-ins. There were approximately thirty six who attended the meeting.

Merry Christmas
