Wartime veteran shares experiences at Wausau High School


One wartime veteran spoke at Wausau East High School, in honor of the holiday.

World War II vet Herbert Suerth gave a presentation to more than a hundred people at the high school Friday night. He talked about a book he wrote, and the mini series called Band Of Brothers based off the book.

Organizers say this is a great way for people to understand what war veterans go through.

"I believe it's important that all veterans share their stories if they're comfortable and just the details in making it personal I've watched band of brothers and I'm sure many people have numerous times but to now put what you saw in the screen and remember his face is going to be lasting," said organizer Colin Hanson.

Suerth held a book signing after the presentation.
