Long Description:
Even though Lincoln County is sparsely populated and many of its male citizens occupied by industries important to the efforts of waging war, the county has fielded a rather large contingent of armed citizens to fight on foreign soil or other efforts in furthering the military needs of the nation during times of war.

This large memorial, commemorating the veterans of four wars, is comprised of four tall brick walls that almost totally enclose a small courtyard, with each wall devoted to a specific war. The short south wall is devoted to the 138 veterans and 21 casualties of World War I. The long west wall immortalizes the 1332 veterans and 44 casualties of World War II. The short north wall commemorates the 279 veterans and 1 casualty of the Korean War and the short east wall the 394 veterans and 3 casualties of the Vietnam War.

The text on the front wall of the Memorial reads:
