The public is invited to submit remembrances and view a new “Wall of Honor” exhibit in Idaho’s Wood River Valley to celebrate the service of military members on Veterans Day.
The Wood River Museum of History and Culture is hosting the exhibit from Nov. 8-22 at 580 Fourth St. E. in Ketchum to recognize U.S. veterans who served our country, according to a press release from the museum.
“The public is invited to participate by filling out a form about a veteran in their lives – this can be oneself, a family member, friend, neighbor, etc.,” the press release said. “The veteran can be living or deceased.”
Submissions are due by Nov. 6.
“We thank our veterans for their service and the sacrifices they made,” said Brigid Miller, community engagement manager at the Wood River Museum of History and Culture, in the press release. “We hope that the community will join us in honoring and thanking the veterans in the Wood River Valley and in all our lives, by filling out a form and/or visiting the Wall of Honor at the museum.”
Submission forms can be downloaded from The Community Library website, while hard copies are also available for pick-up at the museum, Gold Mine stores or main circulation desk at The Community Library. Participants may fill out more than one form.
“We ask the participants, however, to create one page per veteran,” the press release said. “Please include a photo of the veteran along with the information.”
Digital forms can be submitted to Miller at b[email protected], and paper forms can be dropped off at the museum, Gold Mine stores, or the main circulation desk at The Community Library. Contact Miller at 208-726-8118 or at her email address for questions.
