Veterans head to Madison WWII museum on D-Day anniversary
MADISON — A group of Air Force Veterans took a trip down memory lane on the 68th anniversary of D-Day, June 6th. They headed to Madison to take a tour of artifacts from World War II.
About 40 World War II veterans and supporters boarded a bus Wednesday morning at the 128th Refueling Wing in Milwaukee. They headed to Madison on a free trip to the Wisconsin Veterans Museum in Madison - a trip back in time, so to speak.
The trip was organized by the 8th Air Force Historical Society of Wisconsin on the anniversary of D-Day.
As the veterans excited the bus in Madison, memories came pouring back.
“This museum, I think it’s just tremendous,” one veteran said.
Around every corner, the veterans came across items representing their history. The Air Force Historical Society recently donated 40 binders full of historical newspaper clippings, pictures and flight logs.
“I had no idea there was anything so big and so complete. A very, very nice museum,” one veteran said.
