As we approach the 4th of July and the celebration of the United States independence, we here at the Royal Gorge Regional Museum and History Center want to thank our Fremont and Custer county veterans and their families for your service in the military.
Civil War veterans played a vital role in the establishment of our community. “Our boys” enlisted and served valiantly in World War I, II and the Korean War.
We have had an exhibit of military uniforms in the past that honor our veterans, however it concerns me that we have very little representation of our veterans since the Vietnam era to the present.
If you have a uniform that was worn by one of our local veterans, would you consider donating it to the museum so that we can continue recognizing the service our men and women provide?
Have a safe and joyous 4th of July celebration!
