Korean War veteran Don Kickbusch was instrumental in getting the Kewaunee veterans memorial tribute completed. Today it hangs between the two gyms in the high school. Eleven soldiers who lost their lives between World War II and Vietnam are honored. Kickbusch says he is struck by one story in particular. Lieutenant Clarence Duvall, the mayor’s son, died in a plane crash in Iowa in March 1944.
The official dedication for the tribute is February 23rd at 2 PM.
