HARRY A. ANDERSON
MEMORIAL PARK

U.S. Army 1917 - 1919
Born 1894 - Died 1989.



ERECTED TO GOD

and dedicated to those who gave
their lives in service to our
country that we might live in peace.

To those Soldiers and Marines
who died on the battle fields,
To those Seamen who went down
with their ships at sea, To those
Airmen who fought and died so
valiantly. We salute you.


[Note: The crosses each bear the campaign and a number.
Not sure of the significants of the numbers on the crosses.
I assume it is the number of participants from the county.
This is a small county. Surely it could not be the number lost.]

WW I: a simple cross.
WW II: 78,000
Korea: 8,000
Vietnam: 2,500.
