The ICC has launched an online photo exhibit of Irish-born veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, in honor of this Veterans Day.
In the fall of last year, the Irish Cultural Center put out a call for photos and biographies of Irish-born veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, to be displayed in a future photographic exhibit. The initial plan was to install this exhibit at the ICC in the spring of 2020. However, because of the public gathering restrictions this year, we made the decision to launch this mini-exhibit on our website. We are still hoping to create an in-person exhibit at the ICC in the near future, but we wanted to take this Veterans Day to debut our tribute to those veterans born in Ireland and who served their new country.
A veteran’s photo and story will be added each week. View the exhibit.
