As president of this GREAT organization I would like to extend a welcome to all people interested in preserving our military history.
This organization was formed in 1987 and has since grown to one of the most active in the state.
Each month we invite speakers who either have a military background or expertise in military matters.
Our guest speakers have included former Indiana Gov. Whitcomb, who was captured at Corregidor and escaped; General Paul Tibbets, who dropped the atomic bomb on Japan; George Gay, the only survivor from Torpedo Squadron 8 at the Battle of Midway; and, Indianapolis Mayor Ballard, who has been our guest speaker and presented WWII medals to our Roundtable members. Other speakers include survivors of Iwo Jima, Normandy and the Pearl Harbor attack; and, veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
To join our group you do not have to have served in the military. Many of our members are military enthusiasts, or children of veterans who enjoy being a part of preserving our military history.
If you have an interest in military history and this great country, then you’ll enjoy the WWII roundtable

As you may recall, in August of last year we had the privilege of having Medal of Honor recipient Woody Williams (USMC) as our speaker. It was an unforgettable program! Now, we are very excited to announce that we will have two more extraordinary out of state guests as our speakers! On June 25th, Bob Reynolds a British WWII RAF Pilot will speak and on August 27th, a Medal of Honor recipient will be our guest. Thanks to two anonymous donors who are paying for these speakers visits, we are able to offer program tickets for only $15. This price includes a wonderful dinner and the program. In June $3 of every ticket will go to support the Ernie Pyle Museum in Dana, Indiana. In August $3 of every ticket will go to support the local Air Search and Rescue unit here in Indpls. The WWII Roundtable will get $2 of every ticket and the remaining $10 will go to the K of C to cover the food.
Keep in mind that when Woody was our guest, tickets sold out almost immediately. These two programs will be the same. Be sure to get your tickets early as soon as they are available. I was told that tickets will be available March. More information on the program will be posted on the website and mailed to all members. Tell your friends about these extraordinary programs.
