Regarding Lakeview Park War Memorial. At the cornerstone dedication on Sunday, August 30, 1942, Admiral King said “many names will go on the memorial.” Says America now must face “blood, sweat, and toil.” “Where do we go from here?” asked Admiral Ernest J. King of his home-town neighbors ... And then he answered his own question with a ringing declaration that thrilled his listeners. “We’re going on to victory, of course. We will win this war.” —The Lorain Journal, August 31, 1942.
