From Aug. 1 – 26, the traveling exhibit Working Warriors: Military Life Beyond Combat will be on display at Corner of the Past Museum in Sister Bay. The exhibit features photographs and artwork from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum collection. The exhibit includes stunning images and brief, thought-provoking prose.
About 75 percent of military work is considered non-combat. These roles rarely make the headlines, but are vital to every military operation. Exploring the non-combat roles of military service personnel, including work as beauticians, military police, dentists, mechanics, and photographers, this exhibit showcases an often overlooked but highly relatable side of military life.
To enhance the experience, the Wisconsin Veteran Museum traveling trunk for WWII: European Theater will be at Corner of the Past until Aug. 18. The trunk contains uniforms, artifacts, multi-media, and activities that illustrate the Wisconsin soldier’s experience. Visitors can try on the uniforms, handle the artifacts, and interact with the exhibit.
Working Warriors will be on display at Corner of the Past Museum, 10310 Fieldcrest Road in Sister Bay. Admission is $5 and free for children ages 12 and younger. For more information, visit sisterbayhistory.org or call 920.854.7680.
