Nov. 11 – “The U.S. Merchant Marine: Unsung Heroes of WWII,” Mark Randol

One of the greatest and largely untold stories of World War II is the contribution of U.S. merchant mariners who manned the cargo ships and oil tankers bringing the arms, ammunition and other supplies to support fighting forces in Europe and the Pacific. Mark Randol will discuss the importance of U.S. merchant shipping to support the allied war effort and describe how these ships and tankers provided critical supplies to sustain Great Britain and the Soviet Union as they fought the Nazi onslaught.

Randol retired in 2011 after 35 years of military and federal civil service. He served as the senior specialist in domestic intelligence and counterterrorism at the Congressional Research Service in Washington, D.C., where he provided non-partisan research and policy analysis for members of Congress and their staffs. He currently consults on homeland security issues and teaches online undergraduate courses in terrorism and intelligence at Eastern Kentucky University.

All Oakmont residents and their guests are welcome.
