Join us at 10 a.m., as World War II researcher Donna Esposito speaks on "STAG-1: The US Navy's Secret Drone Project in WWII".
Unmanned aircraft have a history dating back to the years before the Second World War. Learn how the discovery of a naval officer's dog tags revealed the little-known story of a top-secret drone squadron that flew missions against the Japanese in the South Pacific during World War II.
The effort to return the dog tags to the officer's family uncovered personal photographs and films, as well as a mystery of three missing-in-action pilots and a surprising coincidence.
