Bringing War Home

Date: November 5, 2022

Time: 10:00am – 2:00pm

Place: Brinkman Service Club

 

Join us on Saturday, November 5th, for a visit from faculty of Utah State University, bringing a display of historical war objects.

 

Many of us are familiar with wartime souvenirs, whether we have direct experience with the battlefield or not. Some of these objects are personal, a way for veterans to preserve their experiences. Often, we treasure objects from our relatives who have participated in the wars of the 20th century; special things linger on as memorials that help our families tell the stories of how beloved fathers, grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers, cousins, and siblings contributed to the larger history of war. Through a National Endowment for the Humanities sponsored program led by two Utah State University faculty from history and anthropology, the “Bringing War Home” project invites the community–military and civilian alike–to connect with the history of war through sharing wartime objects and the personal stories that surround them.
