Museum honors all Iowa veterans

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum hosted an Iowa all-veterans reunion Saturday afternoon.

Museum officials say they wanted to honor 'peacetime veterans', those who were enlisted in the service but were never called to serve.

That includes those who served during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.

"Usually we focus on veterans that have served in conflict areas, that's kind of how we have the museum set up. We wanted to do something for those that have served, were ready to serve, just weren't called to serve during a conflict," said Annette Freeseman with the Grout Museum.

Saturday's celebration is a continuation of the Grout Museum's project to gather video and audio records from veterans of past wars.
