Fallen Heroes Memorial Erected By The American Legion

There are two Soldiers and Sailors Memorials on the Green in front of the Mendota Museum and Historical Society building. This is the newest of the two, with no dedication date visible. It honors local service members lost in WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, and during Peacetime. There is a bronze American Legion emblem embedded in the concrete in front of the memorial. There is also a World War 1-era M1917 155mm Howitzer Field Artillery piece nearby.
