Working Warriors: Military Life Beyond Combat

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum’s Marching Across the State, Working Warriors: Military Life Beyond Combat exhibit features the almost 75% of military work that is considered non-combat. These roles rarely make the headlines, but are vital to every military operation. Exploring the non-combat roles of military service personnel, including work as beauticians, military police, dentists, mechanics, and photographers, this exhibit showcases an often overlooked but highly relatable side of military life.

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum’s traveling exhibit program features unique exhibits that bring the photographs, artwork, stories, and sacrifices of Wisconsin’s veterans to life. The program includes a variety of offerings suitable for diverse venues.

This exhibit is an indoor, easy-to-assemble pop-up banner format, appropriate for a variety of venues. There is no cost, except for shipping of exhibit.

Marching Across the State is funded in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council, with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Wisconsin Humanities Council is honored to include this Wisconsin Veterans Museum exhibit as part of our Working Lives Project.
