Our esteemed Click! Keynote speaker, Louie Palu, is exhibiting large scale banners of his portraits of Garmsir Marines, in the woods of Battle Park by the historic Forest Theater on the UNC campus. This unit, the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, was formed 100 years ago to fight in WW1, where they famously took part in the Battle of Belleau Woods. This unit is based in Jacksonville, NC.
