Nebraska National Guard Museum

 Elaine at the Nebraska National Guard Museum here in Seward, after delivering information on her Cousin Robert Herrold to Col. Jerry Meyer. Robert was a member of Company M of the National Guard which was activated at the time of WWII. Robert was killed during the Battle of St. Lo where over 100 Nebraska National Guard men lost their lives. Col. Meyer will use the information Elaine provided in his task of developing the Museum which will have a Grand Opening this 4th of July. It will have many interactive displays which will make it a very educational  and attractive destination for school children and adults throughout the State and beyond. Plans are also underway for a Welcome to Seward sign near the Kiwanis Flag Display at the east entrance into town. The sign would be a “take off” on the display shown here behind Elaine. Seward’s location near Lincoln has long made it an attractive place to live with our industry, educational facilities, library, parks, hiker biker trail, recreational facilities, etc. The addition of the Nebraska National Guard Museum adds to the list of the City’s attractions.
