​​​​​​​​​​​​invaluable communications role in the U.S. military through two world wars and beyond.
​Who were these birds that flew through jungles, across deserts, mountains and large expanses of ocean? How did they accomplish the seemingly impossible? You’ll find out in Elizabeth’s talk and you’ll never look at a pigeon in the same way again. The event is FREE.
