HONOR THE DEAD – SERVE THE LIVING

Experience the stories that built our nation. The War Memorial Center was never intended to be a static veterans memorial. Our founders—the Milwaukee community—envisioned something more. Rather than build another flagpole or bench, the people of Milwaukee wanted a living memorial to “Honor the Dead by Serving the Living.” Our educational experiences will bring to life this memorial and tell the stories of the veterans who served and sacrificed for our freedom.
