The National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Milwaukee Preservation Alliance want to thank all veterans for their service, including those engaged with our effort to save the Milwaukee Soldiers Home. 

We believe that a great way to honor our veterans is to learn about our nation's history of serving veterans, including locally at the Milwaukee Soldiers Home, which is why we've created this video. We hope it will help you reflect on the purpose of Veterans Day: to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

We have a new website!
