On March 15, 2016 members of Post 26 presented a check for $10,000 to BHS history teacher, Steve Argo, and his "Baraboo 21" student club. This student club and Mr. Argo are working with the Sauk County Historical Society to raise money to build a memorial on the Baraboo Riverwalk to celebrate the 21 men from Baraboo that were aboard the Tuscania when it was sunk by a torpedo from a German U-Boat in February of 1918 during WWI.

The "Baraboo 21" are working with the City of Baraboo and other entities to have the memorial constructed and dedicated on November 11, 2018, which is the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. 

 

On March 14th, 2016, Leon Braun celebrated 70 years of continuous membership in the American Legion. All 70 years are with Post 26. What an awesome accomplishment.
