Various locations in Brooklyn will host an exhibit curated by the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. About 75% of military work is considered non-combat. These roles rarely make the headlines, but are vital to every military operation. Exploring the non-combat roles of military service personnel, including work as beauticians, military police, dentists, mechanics, and photographers, this exhibit showcases an often overlooked but highly relatable side of military life.
The Wisconsin Humanities Council is proud to support this exhibition tour as part of The Working Lives Project.
The Wisconsin Humanities Council was established in 1972 as an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Today, we are an independent nonprofit supported by federal, state, and private funds. Through our own programs and grants to other organizations, the WHC makes possible a rich array of learning opportunities that engage the people of Wisconsin in the exploration of human cultures, ideas, and values.
