Cuba in Crawford County, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Cuba's Gold Star Boys aboard the Blue Bonnet Frisco Train
"Gold Star Boys" designated those that were killed in combat while on active duty in the armed forces. Small pins worn by family members had a gold star on a purple background, bordered by a gold laurel wreath. The gold star was a symbol of the supreme sacrifice made by that person while serving his country. Shown from left to right: Dale K Hudson, Preston A. (Bud) Gibson Jr., Rex Hillard Powell, Lawrence E. Grant, Floyd Cecil Vaughn, and Ralph Burrnell Fishwick.
