Although volunteers have finished their work, new information on veterans will always be accepted.

A project that began eight years ago is wrapping up at the Cottonwood County Historical Society, just in time for Veterans Day on Monday.

Janelle Kaye, a CCHS volunteer who has spearheaded the project, says the museum’s Veterans Database has had all available information uploaded and is free and available for anyone to use.
