Inscription.  
To honor the brave soldiers who fought in World War I, Sam Thomas marked the graves of WW I Veterans buried in the City of Waterloo that did not already have a military recognition. There are 25 in the Waterloo City Cemetery and 18 in St. Peter and Paul Cemetery that now have markers placed — designating them as World War I Veterans.

His project would not have been possible without the generous support given from the following community business, organizations and individuals:
Landmarks Illinois-World War I Monument Preservation Grant
Waterloo Walmart
Monroe County Genealogical Society
City of Waterloo
Optimist Club of Waterloo
Waterloo Lodge I.O.O.F. No.27
Valmeyer American Legion
Jean Jung
Hill Monument Company

Special thanks to the Monroe County Genealogical Society for their assistance in helping locate veterans and also to Allan Jacobs for helping locate the gravesites.
