Local veterans’ items, stories now part of Fort Polk history

By JEAN DUBIEL
 
FORT POLK, La. –– History is documented through writing, evidenced by artifacts and sometimes, if you’re lucky, recounted by witnesses. The Fort Polk Museum showcases the installation’s history through dioramas and exhibits that include samples of uniforms, weapons, equipment and personal effects. Some exhibits even include the personal stories of those who were there, and the new Vietnam-era display has just that –– the personal touch, thanks to two veterans who were willing to donate their military items and share a little of their own histories with the world.
