The Center for World War II Studies and Conflict Resolution at Brookdale Community College presents another in a series of compelling events illuminating the history and legacy of the second World War Monday night.

The event is a public-welcome presentation on the American Volunteer Group, the special squadron that operated in China against the invading Japanese military during WWII, amassing an astounding record of success.

Historian Dan Petach relays the amazing story of the AVG and its induction into the US Army Air force in December 1941, 70 years ago to date.

Displays of vintage photos and period memorabilia will supplement the presentation, inside the Warner Student Life Center on the Lincroft campus. Call (732)224-2315 for more info.
