D-Day Again

D-Day Again
This statue of Wild Bill Guarnere now graces the memorial in Newtown Square.

D-Day Again, a play written by Martin Lentz who served in the 82nd Airborne, will be performed 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 1 at the Rotwitt Theater, Rosemont College, 1400 Montgomery Ave., Rosemont Pa. 19010.

It’s free and reservations are not needed but donations to benefit the Delaware County Veterans Memorial and the Wild Bill Guarnere Memorial Fund will be requested.

The play, we have been told, concerns two World War II airborne veterans who meet in a nursing home, rebel against their empty circumstances and regain their dignity.

It is not suitable for children under 18. The unit of the protagonists has been changed to the 101st Airborne for this performance in honor of Wild Bill Guarnere.

Lentz is the father of former State Rep. Bryan Lentz, who also served in the 82nd Airborne and is producing the play.
