During this 90-minute lecture on the 10th Mountain Division, Tom Duhs will take his attendees through a series of power point slides that explain, in depth, how the division operated. Tom's presentation will delve into such topics as the war years, how the division recruited its servicemen, training at Camp Hale, and finally, how and where they fought in Italy. Pete Seibert, the founder of Vail Ski Resort, was a 10th Mountain Division soldier during World War II. Tom Duhs has been giving this lecture twice per month at libraries, museums, ski clubs, climbing and ski shops, and even Colorado Mountain College for the past 2 years.
