The veterans were selected to represent different areas of the county, Elizabeth Reece, Historical Society president said.

Each was selected from the museum collection.

"We chose them because they were in the best condition or we could find the story of the soldier who wore them. We chose one of each branch of the military that would have been worn during WWII.
