1. name misspellings
As an archivist with the Southington Historical Society, and after having viewed WWII National Archives websites, I would like to mention two names that are misspelled on the marker itself, but are also retyped on a list of participants who gave their lives in the war. The first: "Palumbo, Darmeh", first name should be "Carmen", and "Zienda, John A." should be "Ziemba". Thank you.
