Lunchbox Lecture: Dorothy’s War

September 27, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Thousands of American women did vital codebreaking work for the military in World War II, while housed in special facilities around the Nation and sworn to absolute secrecy.

In this can’t-miss program, you’ll have the chance to meet one such unsung heroine of the war, Dorothy Braden Bruce of Lynchburg, and hear her story of how, among other things, she knew the war was over before the president did.

The program is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Johnson Pavilion at the National D-Day Memorial, 3 Overlord Circle, Bedford, VA.

Copies of Code Girls The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers of World War II featuring Bruce’s story are available to purchase at the Memorial’s Gift Store.
