Wisconsin Veterans Museum featured in Archives Month blog

Today Wednesday, October 28, the Sterling W. Schallert WWII Propaganda Scrapbook-Wisconsin Veterans Museum Research Center is being featured in the Archives Month blog. Sterling Schallert, a Watertown, Wisconsin native, served as a supply officer on LST 465 during World War II, seeing action at New Britain, the Admiralty Islands, and Leyte. LSTs (Landing Ships- Tank) transported large vehicles, as well as troops, from island to island, including some Australian soldiers. It was probably from them that he acquired the colorful and fascinating propaganda that he put in today’s featured scrapbook.
