The Enlightening Bites Lecture Series is happy to welcome Will Watt and the story of his father during WWII. Bring your lunch and enjoy this stimulating series of lectures on subjects of interest in our community. The Japanese empire was rapidly expanding in World War II and China was under siege. After the the Lido Road was captured and several major ports, the only way for American supplies to get to the Chinese Army was through the air by one of the most treacherous route imaginable - over the Himalaya Mountains. This is the story about a young man from south Georgia’s incredible assignment in the skies over India and China. Born and raised in Thomasville, Will Watt served in the U.S. Army Military Police and was stationed in West Germany. He then attended the University of Georgia and graduated from Valdosta State College with a degree in Speech Communications. He has worked at Archbold Hospital for 30 years. He is married and has two daughters. He loves travel and photography and has had a love of history all of his life with his main focus of the World War II air war. In 1990 he completed a 100 hour research project on the Thomasville Army Air Base. Complimentary refreshments and drinks will be offered, but you are encouraged to bring and enjoy your lunch.
