Photos of Iowa's fallen WWI heroes wanted

Posted: Updated:

The State Historical Society of Iowa  is seeking help for a new display which will honor Iowa's more than 3,500 World War I casualties.

They would like photos submitted to them for the display.

The “World War I Honor Roll” will go on display at the State Historical Museum of Iowa next year on Memorial Day weekend. It will include names and photographs of Iowa service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice during World War I.

The display is part of the historical society’s ongoing commemoration of the 100th anniversary of America's involvement in the Great War.

A total of 3,576 Iowans lost their lives while serving their country during the war. 

The public can visit iowaculture.gov/honorroll to learn how to submit you photos.
