The Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas invites local residents and visitors to a unique event on Thursday, March 16 at 3:00 and 4:30 pm at the Flat Rock Bistro Cinema, 2700-D Greenville Hwy., Flat Rock. “Through Their Eyes” is a series of six brief films produced for museum galleries which tell the stories of America’s conflicts since WWI through the eyes of those who fought and sometimes died there. October’s premiere in Brevard brought standing-room-only crowds on three occasions. One WWII veteran who attended remarked, “Every American should see this movie.”
The film gives a brief history of America and Americans at war from WWI through the Global War on Terror, using images, music, video clips, professional narrative, and photos of local veterans.
Museum artifacts support the stories, describing the personal sacrifices of our veterans and paying tribute to combatants and their families. You’ll learn the significance of museum artifacts such as the infamous SIW armbands in WWI, target flags flown from ships in the Pacific during WWII, a sniper scope used at the Chosin Reservoir in Korea, bows and arrows used by indigenous tribesmen in Vietnam, and the unmanned technological capabilities in the Global War on Terror. And much more.
“This film inspires viewers to dig deeper into our history and recognize the sacrifices and service of our country’s veterans,” said David Morrow, President of the museum’s Board of Directors.
Admission to this compelling 45-minute film is $5. Purchase tickets at: https://checkout.square.site/buy/JSQENEZCFCWCAJ2JXPETRETJ
