The War Memorial Center (WMC) is pleased to announce three new members to our Board of Trustees.
Michael Grebe, Michael Gibson, and Charles “Andy” Gordon are all veterans of the United States Army with significant military, business and philanthropic experience.
For 2017, we have several important activities planned and more major reconstruction. So, as I am fond of saying about the WMC, “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”
On December 5th, we’ll begin taking that to a new level by transforming our Facebook and Twitter pages into richer experiences for our audience!
On October 20th, a touching ceremony was held at the Southeast Wisconsin Vietnam Veterans Memorial in honor of the 25th anniversary of its dedication.
In conjunction with MPTV’s airing of Mettle & Honor: The Greatest Generation, WUWM’s Lake Effect interviewed WMC board members Cream Pepito and George Gaspar.
The memorial will be dedicated on Saturday, Nov. 5th, immediately following the 2016 Veterans Day Parade.
WMC is pleased to announce it participation in Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
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.
On Sunday, October 30, 2016, the Milwaukee County Veterans Board of Directors hosted their Annual Americanism Awards Breakfast. Eighteen separate veteran’s organizations presented their awards to recipients of their respective programs.
We had a great time with students from Shorewood’s Lake Bluff Elementary School, who visited the WMC as part of a two-month classroom project in which students met with veterans and focused on the question: “How do we honor those who have helped us?”
