A Tribute to the Fallen of the 20th and 21st Centuries
In the background is the recently dedicated memorial to those from this area who made the ultimate sacrifice from World War I through today. Names were added just before the dedication and some since. The plaque on the flagpole behind our "beautiful" Boffers AA gun commemorates those killed in WWI which was dedicated soon after that war. At the time a German howitzer was stationed where the AA gun is today. The German artillery piece was donated by area veterans as part of the scrape drive in August 1942.
