E-mail Print PDF

The U.S. pilot who shot down four Russian MiGs in a single dogfight during the Korean War then kept it a secret for 50 years will share his story Aug. 16 during a presentation at the Indiana War Memorial.

The heroics of Capt. Royce Williams, a member of American Legion Post 416 in Encinitas, Calif., will be highlighted throughout the evening. There will be a documentary about his 35-minute engagement, a panel discussion and an opportunity to meet the Silver Star recipient.

Williams’ incredible story received national attention when it was last year.

The event is from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 16 at the Indiana War Memorial, 55 E. Michigan St., Indianapolis. Tickets cost $40 ($30 for veterans) and can be purchased from the Indiana War Memorials Foundation online here.
