This month we recognize a couple whose generosity has improved the lives of thousands not only in the Milwaukee area but throughout the world. Dan and Eileen Meehan have built schools, medical clinics and other facilities in countries such as the Philippines, Mexico, Tanzania and Kenya.
Ruby Scheuing is one of our “go-to” veterans here at the War Memorial Center. You will see her on many veteran panels, and she was recently interviewed about her experiences as a nurse during the Vietnam War for our Veterans Story Project.
It is with great honor that we feature Andy and Andrea Schlidt in our Donor Spotlight. A strong advocate for veterans and the War Memorial, Andy was instrumental in designing the new governance structure for the War Memorial in 2013.
Charles (Chas) Mulcahy is well known in the Milwaukee area for his strong support of veteran causes. He was the driving force behind the General Douglas MacArthur statue located in Veterans Park.
Clayton (aka “Chip”) and Alice Chipman have long been close friends and supporters of the War Memorial Center, and were instrumental in establishing the Purple Heart Memorial located at the WMC.
This Valentine’s Day we’re fortunate to celebrate George and Julie Mosher, who have worked to improve the lives of so many during their 50+ years together.
With exciting plans in the works to celebrate our 60th anniversary in 2017, we take time to reflect on the transformative impact on the War Memorial Center from our local foundations and corporations.
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.
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.
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.
