Blackford County W.W. I Honor Roll
Spirit of The American Doughboy
(( Front of Base ))
Those from Blackford County who
answered their Countrys call in the
Apr. 6th 1917 to Nov. 11th 1918.
(( Obverse of Base ))
When the Service Flag has faded,
and the hands that it caressed
have been folded calm and peaceful
on each Mothers loving breast,
Then, “the Torch they passed unto us“
we will bear forever on,
with our lives we will defend it – we,
like they, will “Carry On.”
