Veterans Memorial Bricks

26 September 2016

Did you know that you can buy a brick

to memorialize the name of a military veteran, loved one, family name or business name, to be added to our Veterans Memorial Walkway?  Our Veterans Memorial is located on the museum grounds at 217 Main Street in Eagle.

You can relax on the patio to reflect on the contributions veterans have made throughout our history, and continue to make, to protect and defend the freedoms we love and cherish.

The Eagle Historical Society is also researching the stories behind the bricks, and can use your help.  We are asking donors to write a short essay that will be included in a book that will bring our bricks to life.  Your essay may include the following:

  • Background information on the individual, family, or business
  • Anecdotes that touch the readers’ souls
  • Impact that the person/family/business has had on you or the Eagle community
  • Photo of your individual/family/business (enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope and it will be returned to you)

We would like your story by Veterans’ Day, November 11, 2016, and will host a Veterans Recognition Program on June 3, 2017.  Books will be available for purchase at the Eagle Historical Society.

Bricks ordered by December 15, 2016 will be included in our book!  (Download brick order form below)  If you would like your brick included in the book, don’t forget to write a description for each brick!

Please send your essay and photo to our volunteer editor, Gina Neist at

Eagle Historical Society
217 E Main St
Eagle, WI 53119

 If you would prefer to provide details and have someone else write the essay, please contact Elaine Ledrowski at elaine@ledrowski.com or 262-594-8961.

Project 22 Ride and Film Event

Project 22 Ride and Film Event
With Special Guests – Doc King and Daniel Egbert
Friday, September 16th, 2016

Project 22 is a documentary film detailing the story of two veterans Doc King and Daniel Egbert, who launched a 22 day, 6,500 mile cross-country mission to raise awareness of the high rate of suicide among veterans. During their journey they interviewed researchers, healthcare providers, and veterans. Many of those they encountered had either contemplated or attempted suicide and were able to share the life-saving alternative sources of hope that they found. Asking hard-hitting questions and opening up about their own struggles, the veteran filmmakers share their explorations of hopeful solutions to the problem.

1:30pm – If you’re a motorcycle rider, join special guests Doc and Dan on a 22 mile ride through Milwaukee to raise awareness about veteran depression and suicide as well as show support for veterans and the film event ($10 per rider).

4:30pm – For those not riding, join us at the Harley-Davidson Museum for a reception with Doc and Dan. The reception will feature non-traditional resource providers from across the Milwaukee area. Providers will be available for conversations about their work with veterans and readjustment strategies. (Free BBQ dinner)

6:00pm – Film Begins

7:00-7:15pm – Intermission (Free refreshments)

8:00pm – Following the film, Dr Mike McBride from the Milwaukee VA Medical Center will facilitate a panel discussion on the struggles many veterans face after leaving the military as well as successful treatment and resources available in the Milwaukee area. Panel members will consist of Doc King and Daniel Egbert, Milwaukee veterans from Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, including UWM student veterans, a female combat veteran and military spouse, and the mother of a combat veteran. The audience will have the opportunity to participate in the discussion via comments, questions and remarks. (Free refreshments)

Admission to the event is free. Free parking is available at the Harley-Davidson Museum.

For more information about registering to ride in this event, or for volunteer opportunities and sponsorships, contact Jayne Holland at hollan38@uwm.edu, or call (414) 704-6139.
