At the 2009 Annual Meeting of the Sachse Historical Society, Wanda Stone donated via Jean and Roger Brand the Purple Heart medal awarded to her late husband, Willie Stone. We appreciate the generosity of Wanda, and thank Jean and Roger for bringing the items to us.
Willie C. Stone was an Army Staff Sergeant in World War II, and was killed in action in Holland on September 19, 1944. His glider crashed, and all on board were killed. Wanda also donated to the Sachse Historical Museum an 8 x 10 photograph of Willie and letters from the War Department.
.The Sachse Historical Society has set aside an exhibit in the museum to recognize military veterans. A number of other photographs have been receivedand a newly formed committee will determine space
needed in the museum, display, techniques, and assemble the appropriate information about the military veterans from the Sachse community.
If you are interested in participating in this effort, we would love to hear from you and have you join us. If you have information about a military veteran, we would be honored to accept the information, donation of letters, photos, and memorabilia. Honoring the men and women who have served our country in the museum is directly a part of the mission of the Sachse Historical Society: Preserving the Past for the Enlightenment of the Present Generation, and recording the Present for the Benefit of Future Generations.
These exhibits can be brought to your location for display -- for example: libraries, schools, nursing homes, or during club meetings. We can also customize an exhibit for your event. Contact us for more information.
