    MILLVILLE — The Millville Army Air Field Museum unveiled a new mural at its 18th annual Veterans Appreciation Day at Millville Executive Airport. The mural, located in the airport’s historic district, honors the Millville Air Field Fire Department that was active during WWII at America’s First Defense Airport. “The museum is very proud to once again bring local history alive with a dynamic new mural that documents an important part of WWII history that took place at the Millville Air Base,” said Lisa Jester, MAAFM executive director. “This mural honors the group of trained Millville civilian firefighters who stepped up to serve as the base fire department from 1943 to 1945, and with it we honor all Millville firefighters for their dedicated work protecting our community.” During WWII, the Millville Air Field Fire Department responded to aircraft crashes, on-base fires, and fires in the surrounding woods that were started by gunnery training. In addition, base firefighters were first responders to the crashes that took the lives of each of the 14 pilots who died while training here. When not responding to fires, crews focused on fire prevention and fire safety education. Of special interest within the new fire department mural, artist Sam Donovan used the likeness of local photographer and Millville historian Dale Wettstein. While Wettstein was not a WWII veteran, he was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War who also served as a Millville volunteer fireman for many years. Wettstein was honored at the unveiling ceremony for his many years of support to the museum, providing countless copies of historic photographs and donating frames and framing, and for his time and talent taking photos at all of its air shows and events. “Today, while there is no longer a Millville Air Field Fire Department, this mural still reminds us of the many individuals who stepped up to serve when the call went out,” added Jester. “We thank all of our local firefighters for their service then and now.” The new Millville Air Field Fire Department mural was made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts / Department of State, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Cumberland County Board of Chosen Freeholders through the Cumberland County Cultural & Heritage Commission.
