Meet WWII Hero Jim “Pee Wee” Martin

Boone County Public Library is honored to bring WWII Hero Jim “Pee Wee” Martin to Boone County to share his story with us on Saturday, September 23 at 1 p.m. at Florence Baptist Church, 642 Mt. Zion Road in Florence.

Martin was part of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division that parachuted onto the beach near Normandy in an effort to retake France and the rest of Europe from Nazi Germany. His unit actually touched down in enemy territory the night before D-Day, on June 5, 1944. Martin and his fellow paratroopers fought for 43 days at Normandy before they moved on to invade Holland, fight at the Battle of the Bulge and assist with the takeover of Berchtesgaden, Hitler’s fortress in the German Alps.

At the age of 93, Pee Wee Martin once again jumped out of a plane over Normandy; this time to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Many of Martin’s experiences with the 101st Airborne Division were included in the popular HBO mini-series, Band of Brothers.

This event is presented by Boone County Public Library and co-sponsored by Simon Kenton Sons of the American Revolution, Boone County Daughters of the American Revolution, Florence Baptist Church and Martin’s Manager, Doug Barber.
