Sally Mott Freeman - The Jersey Brothers: A Missing Naval Officer in the Pacific and His Family's Quest to Bring Him Home

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Freeman’s account of what three brothers did in World War II powerfully intertwines national and military history with the particular story of one American family. The oldest Cross brother ran Washington’s first Map Room, the middle one served as gunnery and anti-aircraft officer on the USS Enterprise—one of the few ships to survive the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. The youngest son started in the Navy Supply Corps before being sent to the Philippines, where he went missing in action. Finding him then became his older siblings’ mission. Freeman, a former speechwriter and currently the Board Chair of the Bethesda Writers Center, supplements archival documents with personal letters, diaries, and interviews.
