Just in time for Veterans Day, the galleries of Soldiers Memorial are hosting a variety of new displays and exhibits, including:
- “Vietnam: A Family’s Sacrifices,” telling the story of John Schmidt and Arthur Myers, cousins killed in action in Vietnam
- Ted Williams, a WWII B-24 Navigator
- St. Louis Genealogical Society, detailing how to research your family’s military history
- “She Chose to Serve: Honoring Women Veterans,” a history of women’s involvement in the military, beginning in World War I.
Thank you to Mary Wade, Betty Myers, Ted Williams Jr., the St. Louis Genealogical Society (especially John and Ann Wittenberg, Kay Weber, and Carol Feldman for setting up the exhibit) and Tanya Roth for their assistance with these exhibits.
Look for a reading list and timeline to accompany the women’s exhibit to be published to the website soon!
These displays won’t be up forever, so be sure to come visit soon!
