World War I
Memorial
The individuals whom this Memorial commemorates were numbered among those who answered the call of their country, left all that was near and dear to them, endured hardships, and faced danger. Many of them passed out of sight of men by the path of their duty and self sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after them see to it that their names are not forgotten.
