ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WFRV) – Brown County is unveiling its brand new Veterans Storytelling Wall which is featured at the Resch Expo.
The wall is a multimedia living Memorial honoring local veterans. Monday morning they held a ceremony to showcase the new addition.
The event will have guest speakers as well as a special presentation. One special thing but the storytelling wall is that one of the panels showcases our Local 5 Hometown Hero segments.
Community members, veteran groups, and local officials were all been invited to the ceremony.
The Veterans Storytelling Wall is part of a legacy created within Brown County to honor hometown heroes. The display will include interactive monitors that allow visitors to see the stories of Brown County veterans.
Brown County has been working over the last two years to create the wall after the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena was demolished. The wall also captures the history of the multi-purpose center. The Veterans Wall is located across from the Veterans Memorial plaza near Lambeau Field.
Brown County’s Executive, Troy Streckenbach says honoring veterans is necessary in order to keep their stories alive. He goes on to say the community has played a key role in making these types of things possible.
The Veterans Storytelling Wall will be on full display as of Monday and anyone who visits the Resch Expo will be able to see the stories of local veterans.
