Getting it Done: Anoka County’s Answer to WWII
The Anoka County Historical Society has a new exhibit at the History Center to remember those of the greatest generation who served both overseas and on the homefront.
In a gallery space reserved for nearly 15 years to honor those who served in the United States military, the opening of Getting It Done: Anoka County’s Answer to WWII will highlight the experiences of family and friends who served overseas during this, the 75th anniversary season of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Artifacts on display include knitted red socks and the book of approved patterns, a radio that delivered the news, a banner awarded for the determined war bond effort, and the massive story of munitions development.
