The "Jungleers in Battle, 41st Infantry Division of World War II” will be shown at the Tower Theatre Tuesday night.


Veteran's advocate, Dick Tobaison says Leonard DeWitt, who was a member of the 41st and is the recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross will be at the screening to describe his experience.  "The 41st Division in Oregon was a National Guard Unit. It’s one of 3 or 4 in the whole United States that went off to WWII before the war even started. And one of the company's was right here from Bend, the "I" Company, the 162nd Regiment. And Mr. DeWitt was a member of that organization. As a matter of fact, he joined it kind of on a walk-in and sign up things. He went on to become a very highly decorated veteran. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, which is only second to the Medal of Honor."


It’s reported that the documentary answers the question: "Why did the Japanese attack the United States?"


"Jungleers in Battle" is being shown Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at the Tower Theater.  It's a fundraiser for  the Oregon Military Museum.
