The Stratford Veterans Museum has the mission of honoring veterans from Stratford who have served our country honorably in war and in peace and to act as a repository for their stories. The museum will be geared to accommodate school children to foster their appreciation of United States history and the sacrifices of those men and woman who made our country possible. A major goal of the committee is to make the Stratford Veterans Museum a site for school field trips.
The Stratford Veterans Museum is in the process of collecting information on our town’s veterans (any man or woman who served in the Armed Forces, was honorably discharged, and are (or were) residents of Stratford.
They are interviewing our town’s veterans (and their relatives) to get their stories. If you would like to schedule an interview please email:
Visit this website frequently for information about the museum, latest news, the stories of our veterans, details on items in the collection and a virtual tour of the facility.
They are also looking for artifacts to add to their collection (both physical and online) to help tell our veterans stories. Photos, drawings, letters, journals are welcome. They will also selectively collect items such as uniforms, insignia, patches, medals and other items. If you have items you’d like to loan or donate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A major goal of the museum is to make young students aware of the history of their country, their town and the service of the men and women of the Armed Forces. To help accomplish this, the museum will also house interactive displays that will allow younger students the opportunity for hands on learning.
Board of Directors for the Veterans Museum are:
Bob Mastroni, Chairman
George Grom, Vice Chairman
Bill O’Brien, Treasurer
Chuck Lindberg, Secretary
