Vietnam veteran & Medal of Honor recipient Joe Marm
Joe is a veteran of the US Army and served as an officer in Vietnam. He took part in the Battle of Ia Drang (pronounced eye-ya) in November 1965, the first major battle for US forces.
The battle was depicted in the 2002 film We Were Soldiers, starring Mel Gibson. For his actions in at Ia Drang, Marm was awarded the Medal of Honor, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, and Purple Heart. His talk will focus on this early phase of the war.
The Wayne County Historical Association is in the process of restoring the 1856 Presbyterian Church located on the corner of Ash and James Streets in downtown Goldsboro. Work to repair the roof has been completed but it is only the first step in re-opening the building to the public.
