Veterans Memorial Hall, a program of the St. Louis County Historical Society, announces its next event "Saving Pilot Bush" in the local history discussion series, "History in a Pint."  Mike Zeman of Duluth will tell some of the stories of his father, EM Marvin Zeman, crewman on the submarine USS Finback during WWII. The Finback sailed a dozen successful combat missions in the Pacific Theatre wreaking havoc on Japanese transport. Amongst the missions was a very important one historically; the rescue of a little known Navy pilot, George H.W. Bush, after he had been shot down and ditched in the ocean.  He would later become the 41st President of the United States.

The event is free and open to the public. We advise guests to park in the parking ramp behind and connected to the Sheraton, which is across the street from Carmody’s.
