World War II Iconic Photos Recreated By Local Celebrities In Calendar-Benefits Richard I Bong Heritage Center

Richard I Bong Veterans Historical Center

What an awesome idea!  Re-creating WWII iconic photographs using local celebrities!!!  I am honored to be  part of this project and thank everyone involved for the opportunity to help raise funds for the Richard I. Bong Heritage Center.  Yes, that’s Michelle Lee from the Northlands News Center on the cover, as Rosie the Riveter.  Great job, Michelle!   Want to see my re-created photo?
