Dickenson County Historical Society, Inc. began its military project with the 2009 July 4 celebration. Members of the DCHS displayed their personal family memorabilia and photographs. From that day to the present day (2017) the project has grown to approximately 1500 photographs of men and women who have served or are serving in the United States Armed Forces and who have ties to Dickenson County.
Donations of military uniforms, medals, memorabilia and service information on some of those who served have been received by and are archived at DCHS.
The photographs and memorabilia are displayed on July 4 at DCHS. Anyone who would like to have their photo or the photo of a family member archived and displayed at DCHS, please feel free to contact us for more information.
