Alfred J. Mirabelli

In all of history, the everyday soldier tends to be forgotten while major generals, presidents, and others left, for the most part, out of harms way are credited with successes and failures of others. In an effort to change this, this exhibit introduces you to Alfred J. Mirabelli. A proud military man and a proud father, Mirabelli lived his life according to him. He was unapologetically loud, honest, and was either loved or hated. Though he is long since passed, this exhibit looks to tell the story of an everyday soldier by looking at various images, artifacts, and government documents left behind from his time in the service.
