In honor of Veteran's Day, we at the Harrison County Historical Society are running a Preserve Our Patriots fundraising campaign until the end of November. This campaign was created with the goal of raising $450 for archival and storage materials needed in order to preserve the military uniforms in our collection. In order to donate, click the link below to be directed to our Facebook fundraising campaign page.
The preservation of these uniforms is a very important project for our organization. We have examples from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. These uniforms are some of the most important military artifacts we have as they illustrate the fact that the veterans and military heroes we learn about are not these mythical figures, but flesh and blood individuals that donned a uniform and became part of something larger than themselves. Please help up preserve these key reminders by clicking the link below and donating. Thank you!
