Preserving memories on the home front
ELKHORN -- Bill Sigmund's model airplanes are replicas of the real thing -- many of them the aircraft flown by pilots in World War II.
Now the Elkhorn man's model planes will be displayed among the real artifacts of area residents, who like him, have served in the U.S. military.
The new military memorabilia exhibit is housed in the Veterans Room of Heritage Hall, 103 E. Rockwell St. in Elkhorn. The exhibit is a collaborative effort between the Walworth County Council of the American Legion and Walworth County Historical Society.

Sigmund, a Korean War veteran and a member of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, said he's happy to support the exhibit.
"I think we need something like this. It's something that honors veterans," Sigmund said. "It's something we've needed for many years."
