The Bell Tower Memorial coordinates a program called "Take a Vet to Lunch". This is a mentoring program that pairs community leaders with military college students. Shown here are City of Brookfield Fire Chief and Vietnam Air Force Veteran Charlie Meyer with MATC military student Zach Mayo. If you, or someone you know might be interested in participating, contact us today!

On October 26, 2017, BTM held an Honor Flight Book signing at Culver's in Waukesha. WWII Navy Veteran Al Exner and his wife Norma Mae attended, in addition to WWII Coast Guard Veteran Dallas Kobriger, BTM member Jean Miller, Korean War Navy Veteran John Miller, and BTM member Cheri Enters. All three Veterans enjoyed sharing their stories of military service with one another.

PHS Student Lydia Heinen Shared her experience with the Veterans Oral History Project in an oral essay for the VFW Voice of Democracy competition. Hear her compelling story.

Veterans Howard Hadley and Dennis Ziebell visited WWII Veteran Arnold Fuerstenberg for his 101st birthday celebration. Howard presented Arnold with a WI Vietnam Chapter One coin. Dennis presented Arnold with a commemorative coin "Thank you for your service". Our Veterans of all conflicts are to be celebrated for the freedoms we enjoy. Let us never forget anyone's service to our country whether at home or abroad.


Bill Rheingans, Air Force Veteran and volunteer with BTM, along with Jean Miller, BTM Board Secretary and Treasurer, and Becky Miller, volunteer, appeared on the CBS 58 news on May 19, 2023 to talk about the organization, our projects and building the memorial.
