First Division Museum
Dessert With History Virtual Presentation
Grade 2 and up
Welcome to a kid-friendly lecture series where we create themed treats and talk about military-related history. We begin the series with Command Sergeant Major Mark Bowman and his experience in the U.S. Army. Enlisting in 1979 Bowman began as a tanker and made his way through the ranks to become the most senior enlisted leader of the Illinois Army National Guard, before retiring. Making "tanker treats" with at-home ingredients, young friends can join our virtual event and hear CSM Bowman recount his experiences in a tank, on over-seas deployments, and as a leader in the Illinois National Guard.
For those who want to make our at-home treat please have available:
Rice Krispie treats (homemade or store-bought)
Half an apple
1 Banana sliced
