This weekend, we honor Wisconsin veterans by sharing one of our more recently completed and most captivating collections: World War II Veterans of Mount Horeb.
This project, completed in partnership with Mt. Horeb Public Library in 2008, presents digitized photographs, oral history interviews and memorabilia that document the myriad wartime experiences of six Mt. Horeb natives: Florian Stamm, Willis Martinson, Pat Hitchcock, Ray Cunneen, Wesley Field and Clarence Thronson. Their stories are compelling and serve to remind us of the sacrifices made by service men and women throughout the ages.
Happy Memorial Day and thank you, vets.
