Wallington's monument was created by local citizens as an expression of gratitude, respect & remembrance to those who served in the "Great War."
Wallington's VFW Pavlick-Koster Post #1640, named after two Wallington war heroes, was formed in 1932, with 40 World War I veterans.
In addition, an honor roll, framing the names of all the men in service, is still displayed in the council chamber of the municipal building.
