Jerry Hubbell

  • During World War II, the United States Marine Corps had fought their way through the islands of the Pacific until they reached and captured the island of Guadalcanal. There, on Christmas Eve of 1944, the marines could forget about the war and play the game they loved: football.
  • The highway into Park City from Kimball Junction is dedicated to the 10th Mountain Division. There is a plaque in the base area of the Park City Mountain resort dedicated to eight young men from this area who were members of the Division and died fighting the Germans during World War II. Why are these memorials here? This month's book review by Jerry Hubbell of The Winter Army: The World War II Odyssey of the 10th Mountain Division. America's Alpine Warriors will tell you.
