“The Battle of the Bulge: A Commemoration”

Each year Morris Metz and a few of his military colleagues recall this significant battle of WW II.
In this battle, otherwise known as the Ardennes Offensive, Hitler had hoped to break up the Allied (Canadian, British, and American) forces and thus regain control over the war in Europe. The battle started in late 1944 in eastern Belgium and northern Luxembourg and ended 41 days later in January 1945. Of the 81,000 American casualties, 19,000 were killed, 47,000 wounded, and 15,000 taken prisoner; 100,000 Germans were killed or wounded as well. Metz served in the company of General George Patton. Free with regular museum admission of $5 donation requested.
