In every war since the founding of this country, citizens of Newbury Township have served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America

Many Covington-area servicemen in World War I joined Company A 3rd Infantry Regiment Ohio National Guard at the Armory in Covington. On September 15, 1917, that unit became the 145th Infantry Regiment 37th Infantry Division (the “Buckeye” Division) of the U. S. Army. This Regiment fought in major battles in France and Belgium, and suffered heavy casualties.

Two soldiers from Covington were awarded the Distinguished Service Cross by the President of the United States for ”Extraordinary Heroism in action” during the war. First Sergeant Luther J. Langston and Major William L. Marlin Commander of the 3rd Battalion of the 145th Infantry Regiment. Both are buried in this cemetery. 

The inscription on the memorial reads:

"IN MEMORY OF THE COVINGTON AREA SERVICEMEN WHO SERVED OUR COUNTRY IN DEFENSE OF LIBERTY DURING WORLD WAR I"  "THEY SHALL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN"

This historical marker describes how Wisconsin struggled during World War I. It is located in a rest area on westbound I-94 between exits 41 and 45 near Menomonie, WI. The marker reads:

"World War I

The outbreak of war in Europe in August 1914 did not involve the United States directly. Americans expected to remain neutral in the struggle between Great Britain, France, Russia and Italy against Germany and its allies. The desire for neutrality was particularly strong in Wisconsin, with 25% of the population of Germanic extraction. But by 1917, a majority of Americans favored the cause of Great Britain and France, and President Woodrow Wilson accepted the need to defeat Germany.

The wartime period was stressful for Wisconsin. Some Americans vilified Wisconsinites as being pro-German. Super-patriots committed outrages against those suspected of "disloyalty." German culture was denigrated.

Despite such tensions, Wisconsin citizens oversubscribed to their Liberty Loan quotas and responded enthusiastically to the call to arms. Over 122,000 entered military service, of whom 15,266 served in the Wisconsin National Guard, which became the Thirty-Second Division. By war's end on November 11, 1918, almost all of the Wisconsinites killed in action and fully one-third of the 6,300 wounded were members of the Thirty-Second or "Red Arrow" Division, whose veterans earned over 800 medals for valor.
