Rick Jacobs presents 75th Anniversary of Guadalcanal

On August 7, 1942—75 years ago—the Battle of Guadalcanal began. This was the first major offensive launched by the Allies against the Empire of Japan, and was fought on the ground, at sea, and in the air. Captain Rick Jacobs will discuss this decisive, strategically significant WWII campaign.
