The Eagle Veterans Memorial is located on the grounds of the Eagle Historical Society Museum at 217 E Main Street – Eagle, Wisconsin 53119. The memorial is dedicated to all veterans, past, present and future who serve or have served in the armed forces. We thank you for your service!
In addition to the large memorial plates honoring veterans of
all U.S. wars and conflicts, a brick memorial, with the names of veterans, is
laid out in a decorative manor around a walkway. Many bricks have been
purchased to honor the memory of veterans, and many have also been purchased by
local families, businesses and organizations to honor the veterans and their memorial.
2017, we presented a tribute to those whose names are recorded in the bricks
that make up our walkway to the Veterans Memorial. We published a book, “Eagle Remembers;
Our Memories March On”, presenting 121 essays and photographs
of settlers, veterans, local businesses and organizations, and ordinary
citizens who make up the fabric of our community. The book is part
of a continuing effort to honor veterans and their families.
With a lot of the hard work and dedication by local volunteers Jim and Gina Neist, visitors to the Veterans Memorial will find digital links (QR codes) that will connect them to YouTube videos for each of the stories. For those unable to travel to Eagle, we have made the “Memorial Brick Videos” available here.
The names are sorted alphabetically. Click on the name and enjoy the short video.
