Description of Memorial:
We found this monument while traveling on business. The monument is beautifully maintained and holds a place of honor on the courthouse square. There are some other monuments nearby, including a static weapon display of an anti-aircraft gun, a Liberty Bell replica, and a small planter/flagpole also dedicated to the Veterans of All Wars in Greene County.
