Mahwah Veteran Project
Mahwah Veterans Project
The Mahwah Museum is grateful for all that our servicemen and women, past and present, have done for our country and our town.
The Mahwah Museum has started a Veterans Project to build an archive of biographical information on the men and women who served in the military. The Museum has some information on soldiers who served in the Civil War and World War I but hopes to document the military service of our town in a more systematic way. To do that we need your help!
The Museum would like to build an accurate list of the names of Mahwah veterans. If your father, grandfather, great-grandfather or grandmother served in the military and lived in Mahwah, please contact the museum with that information. Volunteers will then conduct biographical research, looking for obituaries, service records, and photographs. Any help you can provide would be most appreciated.
The Museum hopes to schedule oral history interviews with living veterans. These need not be in person, but can be via Zoom or telephone, or e-mail/snail mail.
In the past month, Ramapo College volunteer Bobby Ciarletta has been working with Museum Board member Diane Mateo to uncover the names of many Mahwah veterans, and has started to learn about their lives, and in some instances meet their families. We hope to profile some of these stories on our website and in future exhibits. If you would like to help out with the project, we can use more hands, especially with interviewing. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please print out this survey, complete and send to Mahwah Museum, 201 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah, NJ, or email answers to email@example.com.
Thank you for your service!
