Donor Spotlight: VADM Dirk Debbink and Terry Debbink

We are proud to honor VADM Dirk Debbink and his wife Terry, who actively support many community and veteran organizations, including the War Memorial Center.

Donor Spotlight: Janice Dahlke

Janice Dahlke knows all too well that our freedom is not free. Her son, Randy Mueller, was killed in action in Vietnam in 1969 and awarded the Bronze Star, the Military Merit Medal, Gallantry Cross with Palm, Purple Heart and Oak Leaf Cluster.

Donor Spotlight: Robert S. Zigman

Bob Zigman’s support of the War Memorial Center is visible on nearly every wall of the third and fourth floors. He and his son, Robert, made an incredible donation of one of the largest collections of original World War I and World War II posters.

Farewell to a Wisconsin Legend: Ab Nicholas

With sadness and great respect, the WMC bids farwell to Albert “Ab” Nicholas. Visitors to the WMC’s Eternal Flame will always be reminded of “Ab” upon glancing at the plate donated by his family for the flagpole in the Veterans Courtyard .

Donor Spotlight: Michael W. Grebe

It would be difficult to find someone in the Milwaukee region who isn’t familiar with Michael Grebe. Throughout his impressive career, Michael has always been a strong advocate for veterans and a longtime supporter of the War Memorial Center.

Donor Spotlight: Mike and Donna Farrell

Giving back to the community comes second nature to Michael and Donna Farrell. Their appreciation for the service of veterans began with Mike’s father, a WWII veteran who served in the South Pacific in the Army Air Corps.

Donor Spotlight: Joe Campbell

Joe Campbell’s support of the War Memorial Center is long standing and goes far beyond financial support. He currently serves on the honorary planning committee for our upcoming event LZ War Memorial Center: Musical Tribute to Vietnam Veterans.
