Sophie Green lives in England and will be joining us via ZOOM. She is an amateur social historian specialising in the American Women who were present in East Anglia during the Second World War. Researching WWII since 2010, with a particular focus on themes surrounding the 8th USAAF, WAC, ANC & ARC, she has written features for local and national magazines and appeared in both film and television.
A large volume of her time is spent at the 95th Bomb Group Museum at Horham, England; as a committee member and leading volunteer.
Her interest in the USAAF scene was sparked as a child, living less than 5 miles from the home of the 390th Bomb Group.
