The Armed Forces Museum & Archives of the Carolinas has added two showings to its series of free documentary shows honoring local former prisoners of war.
“Honoring Our World War II Heroes – The American POW Experience” is a 30-minute documentary about what it was like for prisoners of war. The film was shown last week in Mint Hill and Charlotte and also will be shown at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, at Matthews Community Center, 100 McDowell St., and 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 1, at St. Sarkis Armenian Church, 7000 Park Road, in Charlotte.
The video features World War II veterans Robert Berly and Ed Halliburton of Matthews and Tom Easterling of Mint Hill.
The museum is scheduled to break ground in 2014 at the Park on Fairview in Mint Hill.
