    That is neat. You see a lot of military memorials in smaller towns where patriotism runs deep.

    Excuse me for asking, but what do you mean?
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Here’s a website database that shows the location of all of the known full-sized E. M. Viquesney Doughboy statues in the USA.

    In was in reference to what Steve said. These small towns had deep patriotic feelings during the war years. This town in particular has seen its share of drug addicts and low lifes begin to inhabit its dwellings and started to erode the community. I just imagine it being a very different town 100 years ago, or even 70 years ago, with flags flying from every front porch, that kind of thing. But it's still nice to see the memorial in the town.

    Are the 9 names with "stars" the dead and the rest simply WWI vets from Emmitsburg? It is sad, though, to see that the 3 colored soldiers were still segregated from the other 132. It was a sign of the times, I suppose, but being "colored" did not make them any less worthy...Also, is that a Woman's name-"Lillian Gelwicks"? An Army Nurse,perhaps?

    Yes. The KIA have the stars. No idea on the female sounding name.
