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

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

Linholm served in Vietnam with Admire and will be at the program, also.

Tickets are $15 each in advance, with no guaranteed tickets at the door, as seating is limited.

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