The exhibit – aptly titled “A Tribute to ‘The Greatest Generation’” — was officially unveiled to the public at a dedication event on June 4. The ever-growing exhibit is on display at the museum during its open hours (Tuesdays and Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. to noon) through the Reedley Fiesta weekend Oct. 11-13.

The June 4 dedication event was emceed by Paul Loeffler, host of the “Hometown Heroes” radio show that profiles veterans from World War II and Korea. Veterans attending the ceremony included Vernon Schmidt, a Reedley native and Fresno resident who spoke at the recent Memorial Day Ceremony at Reedley Cemetery.
