History of our chapter Old Abe

The Old Abe Chapter was given our charter at 101st Airborne Association Reunion held at Milwaukee Wisconsin August 1968

William (Bill) Kloss was asked by the Chicago Chapter of the 101st Airborne Association to start a chapter here in Wisconsin. Bill named our chapter The 
Old Abe Chapter after the Eagle Mascot carried on the battlefield during the Civil War. The patch worn by the 101st Airborne is based on the Screaming Eagles.

Charter Members of the Old Abe Chapter had their first meeting January 1989 at Fort McCoy Wisconsin
