Check out a new historical page-turner and excellent Primary Source on World War II in our Local History Room. Bethlehem native and WWII veteran, Robert H. Diehl, has recently donated an interesting compilation of his WWII memoirs. His moving, detailed story commences with graduation from Liberty High School on June 15, 1942 and spans his military years while stationed at numerous Army posts, from Indian Town Gap, PA to Saipan, Marianna Islands, and duty stations in-between. Robert’s memoir concludes with the Japanese surrender and his return to civilian life in Bethlehem.
