Allamakee County Veterans Museum Project seeking donations of military service items from local veterans

Roll of Honor display seeks photos of local veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty

Remodeling of the former Vets Club Building on Allamakee Street in Waukon will be completed this summer for use as a Veterans Museum. Designing and setting up of displays and exhibits will follow as time and resources permit.

Help is needed in preserving the memories and stories of Allamakee County’s military veterans from all conflicts and service. One special project is to collect photos of all county service members who died in the line of duty for use in a Roll of Honor display.

Anyone who has any photos, stories, letters, documents, posters, maps, uniforms, equipment or memorabilia to share or donate should contact Jim Garrett at 563-568-7606, John Bauercamper at 563-568-7526 or, or the Allamakee Historical Society at P.O. Box 95, Waukon, IA 52172.

Photos, letters and documents can be copied and stored as digital images, and the originals will be returned to donors, if desired. Volunteers to help with this and other projects would be greatly appreciated.
