Dedication to :

Henry Pueschner (Sarge)

Sunday, July 20th, 1997

On July 20th, one of our soldiers, Henry F. Pueschner fell asleep. He was born September 19th, 1927 in northern Wisconsin. Later his family would moved to Markesan where he attended Markesan School, it is there his knowledge for history began to grow. Later, at the age of fifteen he joined the military, he attended St. John's Military School in Delafield. He graduated from there in 1944 he joined the regular army and the paratroopers, to serve his country during World War II. He became a sergeant in the 11th Airborne and later, when the war was over, served in the reserves. During that time he was married and had two children, Rodney and Rita

Soon after leaving the reserves he became the director of emergency government in Green Lake County, later to become a prison guard in the Wisconsin Correctional System. There he would become a sergeant and would serve his state for fifteen years.

In 1994, shortly after he went to Greenbush he joined the Battery B. 4th Artillery. After that he attended two gunnery schools and went to every event that was held. It is there he continued to share his knowledge of history, there would be many times you would see him by the cannon telling stories to any one that would listen. He also helped others to cherish their freedoms like he cherished his. This is also the reason he began to give lectures on the Civil War as well as World War II to the local schools and organizations .

He did not stop there, he became the chief security guard at the Experimental Aircraft Assocation Seaplane Base, and continued to work as a LTE at the John Burke Center in Waupun. He was also a mason, a member of the American Legion, N.R.A., Battery, B, 4th Wisconsin, and the Civil War Round Table. just to name a few.

If he was asked to help out he would be the first one to volunteer, he did this because he felt a responsibility to others. And no one had to wonder how you stood, he would tell people what he thought...and if he saw something wrong he would say so.

During the funeral, at the Markesan was stated that a "student has a quest for knowledge and the teacher is willing to share it. Henry was both a teacher and a student, and for every one that knew Henry, they became a better person because of it." I know I came away a better person and I know many of you feel the same. I will never forget Henry, Hank, Sarge or Junior as he was known to his friends. After all he is a hard person to forget and for me he was a easy person to love. I must remember and I hope you will too he is only asleep and some day we will see him again...and it is there that we will have our reenacting together...again.


Day is done, gone the sun from the lake, from the hill, from the sky. All is well, safely rest. God is nigh. Thanks and praise for our days 'neath the sun, 'neath the stars, 'neath the sky. As we go, this we know, God is nigh.
