Emmetsburg Boy Scout Brian Hadley enlisted the help of Troop 46 as he worked on his Eagle Scout service project. Hadley researched the history of the Milwaukee Depot and made a plaque with pictures and history. Emmetsburg’s Veterans Memorial stands on the site of the former depot. It was from that depot that men and women left to serve their country during times of war. The informational plaque will be on display at the memorial site.
