Allamakee County Veterans Museum’s “Harley Davidson Goes to War” presentation now scheduled for March 16

The Allamakee County Veterans Museum will be hosting a special presentation Thursday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the new museum in the former Vet’s Club on Allamakee Street in Waukon. The program was rescheduled from February 23 due to a winter storm.

Area native Craig Timmerman will be giving a public presentation titled “Harley Davidson Goes to War” where he will detail his efforts to locate and restore an authentic World War II Harley Davidson U.S. Army motorcycle, model WLA (pictured in the submitted photo above).

Timmerman is an experienced WWII collector who will explain the training, experiences and contributions of this modern “cavalry” to the war effort. He will also introduce a documentary from the U.S. Army Quartermaster School where motorcycle troops trained. His restored Harley Davidson WLA with maintenance tools and manuals will be on display.

There is no admission charge for the presentations, and the museum is wheelchair accessible. Museum winter hours include tours provided each Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon, and the museum can be available by appointment for groups of all kinds.
