The Licking County Veteran’s 

The Licking County Veteran’s Service Commission invites all Licking County residents to join us for a FREE screening of the highly acclaimed documentary, Dear Sirs. Get your free voucher by visiting The Midland Theatre Box Office in downtown Newark or the Licking County Veterans Service Commision at 935 Buckeye Avenue Newark, OH, 43055. Dear Sirs is the story of a soldier from the Greatest Generation told through the eyes of his grandson 75 years later. Despite working with him for years, filmmaker Mark Pedri never learned the details of his grandfather’s experiences as a Prisoner of War in WWII. 10 years after his grandfather’s death, Mark found an incredible archive of photos and letters that inspired him to bike over 500 miles across Europe following the original Prisoner of War transportation routes, in an effort to tell his grandfather’s story and better understand the man who helped raise him. Snacks and drinks are available for free to veterans and may be purchased by the general public.
