Unique Vietnam Memorial Exhibit with Photos Stopping in Tomahawk
Published on 07/21/2017 under News The Vietnam Memorial in Washington carries the names 1,161 Wisconsinites. Now a unique traveling display is putting faces to those names. It's all part of the Wisconsin Remembers: A Face for Every Name exhibit organized by Wisconsin Public Television, Wisconsin Public Radio and the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. The display consists of 17 portable display banners. While the memorial in Washington features the names of the fallen, this display also features pictures of those individuals. It was a multi-year project that included students, teachers, media and many volunteers who reached out to friends and family to secure the photos. Wisconsin became the 5th state to find a picture of each individual. Eventually they will be part of a permanent education center being built in Washington. Throughout the month of July, the traveling exhibit has been passing through the Northwoods, already making stops in Rhinelander, Wabeno, and Antigo. It's scheduled to be in Tomahawk at the American Legion Lounge on Main Street. The display is scheduled to open at 9am.
