Montana Heritage: No Soldier Left Behind

Saturday, May 25 @ 2:00 p.m.

Join us for the unveiling of “No Soldier Left Behind,” a bronze sculpture by artist Lyle Schwabauer recognizing local men and women that served in Vietnam and the military during the Vietnam War. The sculpture is the culmination of efforts by Margaret and Nolan Mikelson, alumni of Sidney High School who started the project as a way to honor classmates that served in the war. Photographs of the Vietnam War by photographer Carl Hansen, a film put together James Evanson, and other records from the MDHC Collections will complement the sculpture.

Schwabauer is a self-taught artist operating out of the Mountain Sage Gallery in Helena, and Hansen worked as a photographer for the Smithsonian before retiring in 2009. Both Schwabauer and Hansen, as well as Evanson, are also alumni of Sidney High School.

The unveiling of “No Soldier Left Behind” is FREE to the public. Light refreshments served. It will be on display at the MonDak through August 31.
