Wisconsin veterans remember

Adam Holton's memories of Iraq are still fresh, even though it's been nine years since he served as commander of a Marine Reserves company.  He vividly remembers the days during Golf Company's 2004-'05 Iraq deployment when five of his Marines were mortally wounded, and he recalls the tedium and excitement of living in a war zone. Holton wanted his memories, and those of his men, preserved for posterity.  Because as long as he remembers his five fallen comrades, others will, too.  "Keeping their memories alive is really important to us," Holton said.  That's why Holton participated in the Wisconsin Veterans Museum's oral history project. More than 1,800 oral histories of Wisconsin veterans, dating back to the program's start in 1994, are on cassette tapes, CDs and now digital recordings. For full story click here.
