Tyrone has always had a strong connection with its’s military. The exact reason is unknown. Going through our records we had one soldier who fought with Colonel Custer at the battle of the Little Bighorn, over 300 who joined the military during the Civil War, 24 who fought in the Spanish American War, 58 who fought in World War I, over 1,400 who were in World War II, and many others who served in Korea, Vietnam, the War on Terror, and in peacetime. The Tyrone Historical Society would like to display some of these pictures for our visitors.
