On this grassy median between the highway and city streets are four gray granite memorial
monuments dedicated to area residents who served in World War 1, World War 2, Korea and
Vietnam. The two center monuments have a bronze plaque on both sides.
The original World War 1 monument was moved to this location, restored, joined by a World
War 2 monument and rededicated on January 1,1949. The original location is thought to have
been at the junction Church St. and State St., next to the Public Library and across the street
from the Post Office, on what was a grassy triangle. See vintage photo in gallery.

Text on the Main St. side of the monument reads:

1917    HONOR ROLL      1919

MEN OF NORTHUMBERLAND
  WHO SERVED THEIR COUNTRY IN
         THE WORLD WAR

Followed by the names of 4 men “Who Made The Supreme Sacrifice” and 82 men and 1 woman

ROLL OF HONOR

GORHAM, N.H.

IN MEMORY OF HER SOLDIERS AND SAILORS
WHO SERVED IN THE WOLD WAR 1914 - 1918

Followed by the names of 118 local residents who served in the Armed Forces and returned
home following the cessation of hostilities and the Treaty of Versailles.
Followed by a list of eight local heroes who died in service to their country defending freedom
and liberty.
To the right of the center granite column which features the original bronze plaques, is a gray
granite column with a similar World War 1 list of those who served and those who died while
in service. This number is 130 which is a difference of 4 between the bronze plaque and the
granite wall. This happens quite often as when the bronze plaque was produced is usually
soon after the war and inadvertently there are very often names left off and some misspelled.

Original location name: Grand Trunk Railway station on Mount Forist Street in Depot Square.

On April 29th, 1919, Company L of the 26th Division assembled on last time at this location upon
returning from their service in France, after which they were Honorably Discharged, but not all of
those 1.040 men who left returned home. 34 men Made The Supreme Sacrifice in the service of
their country defending liberty. The names of those who’s served and those that sacrificed appear
here for all to see, remember and thank for what they did. When I see a perfect example of a
community War Memorial I think of the country song, All Gave Some And Some Gave All.

Victory Archzoom

The landmark arch in Dixon, Illinois, is 100 years old and Illinois lawmakers are helping to celebrate. Members of the House recognize the centennial of the construction of the Dixon Memorial Arch through and honorary resolution brought forward by State Representative Tom Demmer (R-Dixon). The arch also known as the “Victory Arch”, was built in May of 1919 to honor Lee County service members. It was originally constructed as a temporary structure made off wood, but later was reinforced and made a permanent structure in 1924.

Over the years, it had to be rebuilt and eventually was replaced with a fiberglass version. The current structure, which accommodates the four-lane road that welcomes travelers to downtown, was dedicated during Dixon’s Veterans Day celebration in 1985.

“This arch greets all visitors to Dixon and welcomes travelers to the downtown area,” said Representative Demmer. “It is a mainstay of the city, and I was proud to sponsor a resolution that pays tribute to such an important part of Dixon’s history.” - April 10, 2019

As the centennial of the Versailles Treaty ending WWI was rapidly approaching, the Arizona World War I Memorial which honors the state’s fallen heroes, needed restoration. Since its dedication in 1969, it has been repeatedly vandalized and marred by disrepair. Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame Society members beginning with Terry Araman and David Lucier actively raised awareness and advocated for a restoration plan. Ahead of the November 11, 2018 centennial, the people of Arizona answered the call and donated the funds needed to replace the missing bronze emblem of the Veterans of World War 1 of the U.S.A. The VWW1 USA Department of Arizona erected the monument 50 years ago in Memory of the 127 Sons of the Fledgling State of Arizona Who Made The Ultimate Sacrifice In The World War.
