TOPIC:  Dr. Joe Foley will relate his experiences as an Army doctor on the landing

               George Patton.



      Dr. John Liambeis spoke about his experiences with the Greek Partisans during WWII. He met with a number of their leaders and with several of the British agents attached to the Partisans. One of there operations was the destruction of bridges on the roads used by the Germans to supply the Africa Corps. Spiros (Sam) Pappas also spoke. He was attached to a different Partisan group but his experiences were similar to those of Dr. Liambeis. Neither were involved with the civil war in Greece that followed after WWII.        Our attendance was 91
