 “As a veteran, I consider the War Memorial Center ‘hallowed ground.’ I have a deep personal connection with this building. In 1983, I had my commissioning ceremony here to become a new 2LT in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps Reserves.”
—Major (Ret.) Cheri Rumler
 “One could easily spend hours here taking in all the information! This is absolutely an under-utilized place in Milwaukee. Everyone
in Wisconsin should come here!”
—Instagram comment
 “I think it’s important that veterans share their experiences and knowledge. By mentoring young people, veterans can steer them away from violence, illegal drugs, and irresponsible behavior. I’m proud to be a member of the veteran volunteer community that engages our youngest citizens and encourages them to fulfill their dreams.”
—John Hien, Vietnam Veteran and WMC volunteer
 “It was an honor for us to play a part in such an incredibly
inspiring exhibit.”
—Beth Straka, We Energies Foundation
 “The War Memorial Center serves as a vital link and symbol of respect for the veteran community. We are proud to be
headquartered here.”
— National Association of Minority Veterans of America (NAMVETS)
