  • Sun., Nov. 12, 2pm Battle of the Bulge Program Honors Local Veteran LHS Member James Dougher will present a lecture on the Battle of the Bulge at the Catlin House on Sunday, November 12 at 2 pm with a special focus on Dr. Joseph Schectman, a Lackawanna County podiatrist who as a member of the 3rd Battalion 424th Infantry Regiment 106th Infantry Division was trapped during the deadly battle north of Bastogne, and was able to escape with the help of the 82nd Airborne Division. Mr. Dougher spent countless hours interviewing Dr. Schectman to tell his story which led to a presentation by Pennsylvania Congressman Cartwright of nine medals honoring Dr. Schectman's wartime service, including the Bronze Star of Valor, "for fearlessly running messages as the U.S. 106th Infantry Division was under massive assault by Nazi Panzer Divisions". Dr. Schectman passed away on October 18, 2016 and the Society was honored when his widow, Harriet Schectman donated some of his WWII collection this past Spring
