The Stories of Service exhibit is the culmination of interviews with veterans, largely from Champaign County, and students at Illinois regarding their time in the service. Veterans span all branches of the service. Interviews range from peacetime to combat and highlight the unique experiences that our veterans have both in the military and when they return home.
Posters in the exhibit are a series of quotes around emergent themes like contacting home, women in the military, combat, coming home, etc. A portion of the exhibit focuses on how to preserve veteran materials like letters, photos, etc. The exhibit cases include books and memorabilia from veterans.
