The Veterans Open Roundtable will be Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 2500 Seventh Ave. N.E. in Owatonna.

Presenters will relate stories about their fathers and the 99th Infantry Battalion, which was highly recruited in the Midwest with many veterans from Owatonna and Steele County.

The objective was to train for winter combat, with the plan to attack the Germans in Norway.
