August 6

The National Museum of Military Vehicles in Dubois, Wyoming, will host screenings of the award-winning and Wyoming-produced film “Dear Sirs” on Saturday, August 6.

“Dear Sirs” tells the story of Wyoming filmmaker Mark Pedri, who retraces his grandfather Silvio’s journey through World War II as a Prisoner of War.

It wasn’t until after Silvio’s death that Mark found an archive of old photos, letters, and documents detailing Silvio’s journey as a POW in World War II. The discovery inspired Mark to cycle over 500 miles across Europe, following the original Prisoner of War transportation routes, to tell his grandfather’s story and better understand the man who helped raise him.

Screenings of the film will be held at the Museum at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with a special filmmaker Q&A at 3:30 p.m. There will be no additional charges to see the film or take part in the discussion that will follow. Guests who would also like to tour the Museum will be subject to normal admission charges. Veterans and active duty servicemen and women are always admitted free.
