The Veterans Project is an effort to document and recognize all Veterans from Balboa Island or who are connected to the Island. Headed by William Stewart, our Curator of Veterans history, we are attempting to collect as much information as possible about the military veterans from our community. If you would like to share your veteran’s history with us, please call the museum at (949) 675-3952 or William Stewart as (949) 673-3588 or email:


We have held several veterans events since this project began. To see photographs from these events, please click on the link.
