The Highwood Historical Society recently received a donation of a souvenir program from the August 18, 1946 Highwood Veterans' Day Celebration honoring the 500 ex-WII servicemen of Highwood. This Memorial Day 2017, HHS wants to recognize those Highwood veterans. We are asking for a photograph of each of the following, preferably in uniform, with their service history: branch, years of, and theater if known. Please look for family and friends. Help circulate our request. And send veteran's photograph and information to HHS via Facebook, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or HHS, P.O. Box 132, Highwood, IL 60040.
Call 847-682-9039 with questions or to offer other WWII memorabilia, photos or artifacts.
