Brookfield Historical Society American Military Forum - Children of the WarMuseum Exhibit Honors Fallen Brookfield Military Heroes

05/21/2017 to 06/04/2017

165 Whisconier Road , Brookfield, CT

Every Saturday from noon - 4 p.m. with extended hours on Sunday, May 24 (Brookfield's Memorial Day Celebration). The Exhibit will open on Saturday at noon in the Museum located at 165 Whisconier Road, (intersection of Routes 25 and 133) in Brookfield Center. It will continue each Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. through June 4th and will also be open during the Brookfield's Memorial Day parade on Sunday, May 29. Each year we pay tribute to Brookfield's fallen military heroes but until recently, little was known about who they actually are. We have now been able to identify 44 former Brookfield residents who gave their lives, on the alter of freedom, in defense of our nation. This exhibit provides our community the opportunity to gain a more intimate understanding of the courageous servicemen we honor. It not only contains the names of the fallen, but also background information, where available, on both their civilian and military lives as well as poignant images and photographs. It is a moving tribute to these men who have made so grave a sacrifice for our community and our nation.
