Today is the deadline to send in stories about local veterans to the Wood River Museum of History and Culture, that will be displayed in their exhibit “Wall of Honor” from Nov. 8-22. The public is invited to participate by filling out a form about a veteran in their lives—yourself, a family member, a friend, a neighbor, etc. The veteran can be living or deceased.

“We thank our veterans for their service and the sacrifices they made,” says Brigid Miller, community engagement manager at the Wood River Museum of History and Culture. “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. Hard copies are also available for pick-up at the Museum, Gold Mine stores, or main circulation desk at The Community Library. Participants are welcome to fill out more than one form, but are asked to only fill out one page per veteran. Please include a photo of the veteran along with the information.

Digital forms can be submitted to Brigid at, and paper forms can be dropped off at the Museum, Gold Mine stores, or the main circulation desk at The Community Library.
