Bruce Gordon will talk about his experiences in Hawaii during the attack on Pearl Harbor and present a program about the war in the Pacific at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Scott County Public Library, 104 South Bradford Lane, Georgetown.

Gordon, a retired Air Force fighter pilot and history buff, will discuss the strategies of World War II in the Pacific. Gordon's presentation is designed for those who are less familiar with World War II history.

In addition to his military service (he flew 132 combat missions in Vietnam), Gordon spent his childhood in Hawaii during World War II. His father was an executive with Eastman Kodak Co. and the family traveled around the world.
