Fort Hunter Soldiers Honor Roll

Provided by Lisa K. Slaski

I recently received this message from Kim Downing a site visitor who, with the help of her father, restored the Honor Roll in the summer of 1999 for her Girl Scout Gold Award:

"When the monument was first established in the early 40s it was to honor those who had served in WWI and II. Then in the 70s when it was restored they added names of people who served in the Korean Conflict and the Vietnam War. One other quick bit of information, the name in back was done so because at the time the monument was originally put up, he was the only individual who was deceased after returning home, but prior to the monument erection. Also the name in blue, was at the time the only female on the board to have served. The monument was created to honor those living in Ft. Hunter that went to war." - Kim Downing
