To Honor All American Veterans


Freedom is not free.


★ All gave some; some gave all ★

This memorial is dedicated in honor and memory of all veterans near and far who serve, and have served, in the Armed Forces of the United States of America, often facing a resolute and brutal enemy to preserve America's freedom. Their loyalty and service during times of war and peace define the character of our great nation, and a grateful community remembers and appreciates their duty, courage, and personal sacrifices to defend and preserve our freedom.

 

Lest we forget

Let us always be mindful of the sacrifices made to protect and preserve our country.

Memorial

On September 26, 1918  the U.S. Army launched one of the largest offensives in American Military history, the Meuse-Argonne Campaign of the First World War.  More than 1.2 million soldiers of the American Expeditionary Forces engaged in this critical battle that lasted until Armistice Day.

During the forty seven day battle... 

…over twenty six thousand Americans lost their lives, and nearly one hundred thousand were wounded.
