In honor of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, I will be sharing the stories of veterans from Western and Central Wisconsin who served our country during WWII.

Originally from Elmwood, Donald Schmitz entered active service in the Army on May 21, 1943. Donald was attached to Headquarters Company, 17th Armored, Infantry Battalion 12th Armored Division where he served as an infantryman, rifleman and radio operator. Donald worked in the Rhineland Campaign and fought during the Battle of the Bulge. Through his hard work and commitment, he achieved the rank of Corporal and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, Good Conduct Medal, American Campaign Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Medal with 1 bronze service star, World War II Victory Medal and Honorable Service Lapel Button WWII. He was honorably discharged from the Army on April 13, 1946.

If you are a veteran and would like to share your story, we want to hear from you. I authored legislation that created the Veterans History Project, a program through the Library of Congress that collects stories from veterans across the nation. For information on how to submit a story to the Veterans History Project, call my office toll-free at 1-888-442-8040, or go to www.loc.gov/vets.

This treasure was recently found in the wall or ceiling of the Plum City American Legion Post 365. It is a painted curtain that, according to a now 88 year old gentleman that attended Plum City school, hung in that same building that used to be the school gymnasium as early as the mid-1940's.

Does anyone remember this curtain?

This is our 5th award and we hope some day the honorees will return to Elmwood and put their skills to use by writing another History book of Elmwood. Our version is already 13 years old.

Election poll workers are desperately needed in the Village of Elmwood! If you are interested, 18 years old and a resident of the Village of Elmwood, please stop in the Village Office or call me at 715-639-3792 for more information! Thank you!
A poll worker is the last human being the voter encounters before he or she enters the voting booth to cast a vote. In many cases a poll worker is the only "official" human representative of the electoral system ever met by the individual voter.

1970 Music continues to make significant impact with the largest ever rock festival held on the Isle of Wight with 600,000 people attending, including some of the biggest name in music including Jimi Hendrix and The Who. This is also the year The Concord makes it's first supersonic flight. Another significant change is the age of voting is now lowered to 18 in the US. Gas was 36 Cents / gallon; Average income $9,400.

Guessing this is the original owner of the historic home on Main and Shaw Avenue, Dr. Breed. One lone white pine stands at the corner. The scene has certainly changed today as the boulevard is lined with maples. Thanks to Tim Ottman and Don Blegen for sharing.
