I have been deeply moved by the patriotism of the Wisconsinites, and strive with my photographs to honor those who gave their lives to preserve the freedoms we enjoy today and too often take for granted. If I have missed a veterans memorial in your community, please let me know so we can work together to have it added to the website.

"Just A Common Soldier", also known as "A Soldier Died Today", is one of the most popular poems on the Internet. Written and published in 1987 by Canadian veteran and columnist A. Lawrence Vaincourt, it now appears in numerous anthologies, on thousands of websites and on July 4, 2008 it was carved into a marble monument at West Point, New York. This year marks the poem’s 25th anniversary.
Please enjoy this tribute to the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen who have given so much for our country.

[Wisconsin] Women Remember the War, 1941-1945
To help mark March as Women's History Month 2015, the Wisconsin Historical Society Press announces the re-release of Women Remember the War, 1941-1945, a collection of interviews with Wisconsin women who took part in World War II history - at war, on the job and at home. First published in 1993 as part of the Society's "Voices of Wisconsin's Past" series, the book brings to life the recollections and experiences of women like Kaminski who shouldered many and sometimes conflicting roles during World War II.
