613 Pleasant St. New Bedford
Bill Comeau, a New Bedford native his whole life, has been recognized as a ‘Distinct Member’ of the United States 12th Infantry Regiment. He was also awarded the Order of St. Maurice Medal by the National Infantry Association for his efforts promoting the U.S. Infantry legacy.
Bill will be presenting his book ‘Duel with the Dragon’ which begins with his childhood experiences in New Bedford in the 1950’s and 60’s. This will be followed up by his wartime training and serving in Vietnam, including his participation in the Battle of Suoi Tre. That battle has the distinction of producing the highest number of enemy deaths of the entire Vietnam War in a one-day battle (638 KIA).
Bill will read short excerpts from the book, then answer questions before putting the book up for sale. All books will be autographed.
This event will be held in the 3rd floor Meeting Room at the New Bedford Downtown Library, located in the heart of Downtown New Bedford.
