Several times each year the museum selects a Minnesota veteran whose military service deserves note.  A short biography is written and a special exhibit is created near the Veterans' Support Wall in the museum. 

Remembering Everyone Deployed


This exhibit is usually dedicated to showcase the services of a single Minnesota veteran, and their contributions to our country. However, for the Holidays, we decided to dedicate this month’s Featured Veteran display to all the service members who can’t be home with their loved ones during this time.

On display are some items that often were included in care packages sent to those serving during WWII. For the holidays this year, we hope you take some time to consider the sacrifices that service members and their families make during the special times of the year. Also think about things that would be included in a care package today.

We wish to thank all those who are serving in places far away, and to family and friends who are missing their presence during this important time of year.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to each and every one of you!
