Our mission to veterans includes sharing our passion for social dance with patients at Milwaukee's VA Medical Center. Join us for an evening
of our favorite dances, 1860-present, at Lake Wheeler Pavilion.
Bring a more-or-less healthy snack to share. Please, nothing homemade according to VA directives. Wear your dancing shoes. Casual modern attire. All are welcome!

Organized in 1862 and reborn in 2003, the West Side Soldiers Aid Society is a 501(c)(3) non-governmental non-profit organization dedicated to the story of the first Wisconsin Soldiers’ Home in downtown Milwaukee and the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers (now the Zablocki VA Medical Center). Our mission and activities include: support for the men and women in our Armed Forces and veterans of all eras; annual Decoration Day (Memorial Day) Observance, Forest Home Cemetery; participation in patriotic events; and regular Civil War Dance sessions at Hales Corners Library.
