The Mahaska County Historical Society is gathering information of county veterans and active military personnel for our archives. In an upcoming military exhibit, information will be available to the public by accessing an interactive database. Veterans since the county's founding in 1844 will be included with this database. Only the required fields on the form will be made public. No contact information will be shared.
Any veteran or family member who would like to share their story more fully may indicate their interest on the form. The MCHS is conducting oral histories to preserve these stories of the past. These voice or video recordings will be preserved in the research library at MCHS. There is NO obligation to be interviewed if you fill out the form.
