“The Battle at Brecourt Manor” Showing

The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum is excited to host a showing of the “The Battle at Brecourt Manor.”  This  documentary is a non-profit educational project which carries the intent of accurately representing the events that took place on June 6th, 1944 for the men of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. The Brecourt Manor Assault and the men of Easy Company were both made famous by the book written by Stephen Ambrose and popular HBO mini-series titled “Band of Brothers” executive produced by Tom Hanks and Stephen Spielberg.

The event includes a question and answer portion with executive producer Vance Day, promotional manager Justin Alderman, 1st Lt. Lynn “Buck” Compton, and T/Sgt. Don Malarkey. Books will also be available for signing. The event is free with Museum admission. Please contact 503-434-4185 or events@sprucegoose.org for more information.
