Tribute to Local Veterans at the Callahan Research Center
May 29 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Newtown Historic Association will have a “Memorial Day Tribute to Honor Local Military Veterans”. See over 100 pictures of local soldiers who fought in WWII. This collection was created by Mike Donovan, a past NHA member and history buff. On display are letters written by the soldiers themselves with private moments shared through the exhibition allowing us to experience moments both in private and in battle in their own words.
New to this tribute will be over 300 WWII military shoulder patches from the US Army, Army Air Force, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard. Represented are a variety of battles that made up those campaigns across Europe and Asia. A special focus is provided through 12 Newtown natives and soldiers, not all of them coming home.
