An interrogator of Nazi war criminals at the Nuremberg Trials will be the guest speaker at the Nov. 8 Salute to Veterans program at Faith Community United Methodist Church.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg John Dolibois will speak about his experience as an interrogator following World War II at the West Chester Township church, 8230 Cox Road.
His address is part of the church’s program to honor veterans of all wars. It begins at 7 p.m. and is open to the public at no charge.
Anyone who served in the military is invited to the program to be honored.
Besides Dolibois’ talk, the program includes hymns, patriotic songs, a men’s choir, solos, piano, and trumpet music. There also be a call to the colors, a color guard from American Legion posts and a bagpipe performance from a group based at the Butler County Sheriff’s Department.
Born in Luxembourg, Dolibois, now 94, immigrated to the United States in 1931. Eleven years later he became a United States citizen, graduated from Miami University, got married and was drafted.
He served in the mechanized cavalry under Gen. George Patton, earned the rank of lieutenant and eventually went into military intelligence.
Following the war he worked for Procter and Gamble briefly before getting involved with Miami University, retiring in 1981 as its vice president emeritus for university relations.
After he retired, President Ronald Reagan appointed him ambassador to Luxembourg. Dolibois now resides in Hartwell.
