Starting in November 2014 with an idea for a beautiful hard cover perfect bound book that would be dedicated to the Veterans of Fillmore County, MN, we collected photos, stories and service information for over 3,400 Veterans from this region.
We are grateful for the assistance of all local American Legion, VFW posts, historical societies along with the community that encouraged people to bring in photos, memorabilia and stories relating to their family members who have served in the military. We also greatly appreciate the support of the Fillmore County Veteran Service Office.
Our staff at the Fillmore County Journal has worked diligently to layout and design this beautiful hardcover tribute to Fillmore County Veterans.
We appreciate the long line of Veterans who have served from Fillmore County, spanning many generations. Publishing this book for our Veterans is the least we can do to say “thank you” for their service.
Thanks again to all of our Veterans.
