John Katsaros was a young aerial gunner in World War II when he saved his fellow soldiers after being shot down during a raid to destroy a German aircraft factory. Hear how he escaped from the Gestapo as he shares his story in an engaging lecture at Wenham Museum’s annual Military History Day tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. In addition to Katsaros’ heroic story, visitors can salute the service of America’s armed forces by meeting and hearing from veterans and re-enactors who will be sharing stories and by exploring artifacts and authentic military vehicles. Katsaros’ lecture starts at 11 a.m., after which he’ll sign copies of his book, “Code Burgundy — The Long Escape.” Admission is included in the museum’s regular admission price, which, for nonmembers, is $8 for adults and $6 for children ages 1 and older. Active-duty military members and veterans with IDs will be admitted for free. The museum is at 132 Main St. in Wenham. For more information, call 978-468-2377 or visit www.wenhammuseum.org.
