The names of the monuments are the “Twentieth-Century Veterans Memorial” for the current lot and “Veterans Memorial at Spring Grove” for the new lot.
“All gave some, some gave all,” part of the 20th Century memorials reads. “Let them not be forgotten.”
The veterans of World War II are fading fast. The youngest enlistees of 1945 would be 85 today. Veterans of Korea and Vietnam are aging. And new veterans of Afghanistan, Iraq and Middle Eastern conflicts are swelling the ranks.
It is our solemn duty as Americans to respect, care for and honor them all.
