Speaker- Highgrounds Veterans Memorial Park Board Member & Vietnam Era Veteran, Beth Martin at 7 p.m. The reception and speaker highlight the Vietnam Paper Wall obituaries of those who died will in service during the Vietnam War. Beth Martin will speak to the importance of Veterans� recognition and memorials. This exhibit took the cooperative effort of the libraries, genealogy groups, and historical societies state-wide to search for the obituaries and to assemble the exhibit for the LZ Lambeau event in 2010. The powerful LZ Lambeau event was a "Thank You" and "Welcome Home" to all of our WI veterans. This statewide effort honored Wisconsin Vietnam War Veterans in a weekend of recognition and celebration of their service and sacrifice, as well as that of their families. It also offered the warm welcome home that many of them never received before. Mary Jane Herber, of the Local History and Genealogy Department of the Brown County Library in Green Bay and coordinator of the project says �The Paper Wall is meant to show the reality of war, the ultimate sacrifice, and the families and communities that were left without the promise that each of these casualties may have provided our society.� Refreshments provided by Marshfield Public Library Foundation.
