History Museum Honors Veterans

In addition to participating in the Annual Veterans Day Program at Foothills Higher Education Center on Monday, November 12, the History Museum set up a temporary exhibit in the Museum to call specific attention to the contributions and sacrifices of Burke County citizens in the defense of this country. The History Museum has a number of exhibits on the first floor dedicated to those who have served in the military, including uniforms, photographs, artifacts, and videotaped interviews of veterans who served during World War II.

If you haven't seen these exhibits, schedule some time to visit them. You may well learn about a family member or friend who served in the military, and you surely will learn a lot about these hometown folks who gave so much for the freedoms we all enjoy.
