WWII Veterans Needed for High School Project that will be in M.C. Museum

August 20, 2014

DW.PHILLEATHEAD.JPGThe Marshall County Museum and the Weidner School of Inquiry are collaborating on a project that focuses on the war experiences of local WWII veterans.

The students are looking for local WWII veterans to interview about their personal WWII stories. The interviews will be captured on video and the finished product will be presented to the museum to be used as part of a permanent exhibit enhancing the artifacts and memorabilia that are already a part of the museum’s collection in the Military Room.

The addition of video footage will make the exhibit come to life with “real stories” about “real people” from our community.

This endeavor will not only educate the local high school students working on the project, but will enlighten museum patrons by being able to see and hear how lives were forever changed and impacted.

With the 70th anniversary of both D-Day and VJ-Day, the need to encapsulate this time period seems even more critical, as many veterans from this war are no longer with us. If you know of anyone that would be willing to share their experiences during WWII for this project, please contact the museum at 574-936-2306.
