Madelia Veterans Memorial
The Madelia Veterans Memorial Committee is pleased to announce
that they have received a grant from the State of Minnesota
Sesquicentennial Committee for the development of Veterans of
Watonwan County Histories.
The Committee in
collaboration with the Watonwan County Historical Society
will be collecting
as many veteran stories as possible in Watonwan County.
This is a wonderful opportunity for veterans to share their
memories of military service. Each story is important, not only
stories of heroism, but the everyday story of your service to
country. At this
time I would also like to mention that we are not only looking
for stories of war but of peace time tours of duty also.
Remembering that “all wars are started in peace time”.
make the collecting of histories easier, we have the
capabilities of video taping these stories along with the
written stories. This is
a huge undertaking but it is very important that we preserve
these important bits of history.
Your story is important. The people to contact are Deb
Grote at 507-317-8550 or Wilma Wolner at 507-642-3247 or email
firstname.lastname@example.org, attention Wilma Wolner.
There are people available to help you write your story
