|2. Parke County Indiana - War Memorials|
At the call of duty they did not falter and in the hour of death they knew no fear.
Their consecration to a bitter task and their sacrifice become our challenge to defend in peace as in war the dignity of free men everywhere. All men fear, but the brave put their fears down and go forward, sometimes to death but always to victory.
Erected 1949 by Parke County and Fellenzer Post 48 American Legion.
