The Scott County Veterans biographical history book honors 500 Scott County veterans who have served during war and peace, and includes special stories of interest about veterans and the Prisoner of War camp in Austin. There are also tribute sections to Prisoners of War and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The special commemorative editions are still available for purchase, and will make wonderful gifts for Veterans Day and Christmas.
The book was published by the Scott County Community Foundation earlier this year, and serves as a military, historical and genealogical reference for future generations. Copies are available for $49.95 plus tax ($53.45 total), or books may be shipped directly from the publisher for an additional charge.
