Elwood: The Story of a Catholic World War II Hero

November 5, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 2:30 pm EDT

Free

On October 26, 1942, in the South West Pacific Theatre of World War II, Elwood Euart and over 5,000 troops were aboard the SS President Coolidge when it struck two American mines while approaching a naval base. Those who were able to make it safely to shore watched as Elwood risked his life by returning to the vessel to save the remaining men on board. After rescuing the men from the infirmary unit, he was unable to escape and went down with the ship.

Join us as author Sister Lucia Treanor, a direct relative of Elwood, talks about her new book and of Elwood’s extraordinary heroism in the face of danger. But Elwood: The Story of a Catholic World War II Hero is more than that — it is the story of true faith and real virtue, born of a love for God and others, which gave the young Captain Euart the fortitude to do what was needed when the time came.
