Nebraska’s legacy of hospitality to America’s armed forces commemorated in new hardcover book

Pediment Publishing is proud to announce a partnership between the North Platte Telegraph and the Lincoln County Historical Museum on a new limited-edition book, the second in their series commemorating west central Nebraska’s century-old legacy of hospitality to America’s armed forces. The story is told in heartwarming letters dating to the present day by some of the 6 million U.S. and Allied service members who not only visited North Platte’s World War II Canteen but also expressed their thanks and shared their stories through letters and telegrams they, their loved ones or their descendants sent to North Platte. It is a follow up to the 2019 book, Canteen: As It Happened, which showcases on-the-spot Canteen coverage and the repository of Canteen photos at the Lincoln County Historical Museum in North Platte.

Production is underway now, with release set for August 26, 2022. Pre-orders are open at Pediment Publishing.
