A retired Major General with the United State Marine Corps will be in McPherson next week.

The McPherson American Legion announced Tuesday that Major General John Admire will be visiting Post 24 Nov. 7 for a dinner program to speak about his book “Darker Than Dark” and the Vietnam War. The book is historical fiction, based off real battles and real marines, which includes Bill Lindholm of Lindsborg.

Tickets are $15 each in advance, with no guaranteed tickets at the door, as seating is limited. Any Vietnam-era veteran can receive one free ticket by contact Jim LaDuke at 241-8600 or by stopping by his State Farm office at 900 North Main before Tuesday.

Social hour for the program is from 5-6 p.m., with the dinner beginning at 6 p.m.
