Description of Memorial:
This memorial is very simple, yet very moving. Not a lot of verbage on it, but what is there says it all. It is honoring all veterans in any war. The three granite stones are very appropriate to the size of the town. A small town with a small monument. Nothing ornate or gaudy, just a very nice memorial.

Wars mentioned (Multi-war only): Not listed
