Documentary Screening - "Mon Cher Camarade"
Solomon Victory Theater

5:00 pm Reception | 6:00 pm Screening

Lafayette-based filmmaker Pat Mire will join us to introduce his documentary that acknowledges the unique and important contributions of French-speaking Cajun soldiers, an often overlooked yet important aspect of the war effort. During World War II, hundreds of French-speaking Cajun men from South Louisiana enlisted in the US military. French-speaking Cajuns not only worked with the French resistance after D-Day, but they also provided the US Army’s most effective means of communication with local authorities and the civilian population which, in turn, provided critical support and intelligence to the American army. This event is free and open to the public but requires reservations.
