"Why They Never Talked About It" is Nov. 27, 1:30 p.m., Robins School of Business, Ukrop Auditorium. The free event is open to the public, but registration is required.  

Heilman (93) served in the U.S. Marines during World War II and is the national spokesperson for The Greatest Generations Foundation. He is well-known for his commitment to raise awareness for other veterans and has completed cross-country rides on his Harley to promote efforts to honor and preserve the legacy of World War II veterans.

“These were not the kinds of circumstances that you took home to your mother or to your wife or your children,” said Heilman. “So now, with the majority of veterans deceased, grandchildren are traveling abroad to see where their grandfather fought in WWII, still trying to find what it is that he wasn’t able to speak to. I want to share from my experiences to bring clarity and closure to why experiences at war may have never been discussed.”
