Being a 'local tourist' with code talkers and astronomy | Arts & Culture
Would you like to ‘Be a Local Tourist’? Here are a few things you could do:
Learn more about how shrewd our military has been and the methods used to conquer our enemies, join the USAICoE History Office, Fort Huachuca, for a one-hour free and open to the public presentation on Native American Code Talkers. Dr. William Meadows, leading expert on the Code Talkers, will share details about these amazing Native Americans and how successful they were in time of war. The program will be held at Fitch Auditorium, Alvarado Hall at 2:30 p.m. on November 14. Remember that Fort Huachuca has entrance requirements for access onto the post.
Take advantage of experts in the field of astronomy by attending Astronomy Night on November 15 to be held at Patterson Observatory, University of Arizona South campus, at 7 p.m. This is your opportunity to learn about the planets, stars, constellations and other astronomical phenomena. We, in southern Arizona, are fortunate to have such brilliant, star-studded skies.
