21st Ward War Memorialloupe

Closed arch memorial behind protective fence.  To the memory of the boys from the 21st Ward who lost their lives in the World War 1914-1918.  Includes Korean * World War II * Vietnam added later.

Greater love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.
How sleep the brave who sink to rest by all their country's wishes blest. By fairy hands their knell is rung by unseen forms their dirge is sung.
All time will be the millennium of their glory.
