100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaqueHonoring the WWI Veterans interred at Jackson's Pioneer Cemetery has included working with the local community to identify all WWI Veterans on site, seeking family contact and service information on each WWI Vet, publishing a map of graves with brief name and service description of each, restoring the seriously impaired grave-site of WWI Veteran Albert H. Bode, and flagging each WWI Veteran grave when holding a WWI commemoration ceremony for families and community members. Due to local interest in the project and promised support of the American Legion and Jackson City Cemetery Board, the project has expanded its vision to include a potential WWI Centennial plaque at cemetery entrance with the names of each WWI Veteran engraved as a secondary project for the following year.  Sierra Amador Chapter NSDAR is thankful to the WWI Centennial for inspiring this project.
