What began as an effort to replace the flagpole at the Wanamingo Ball fields
turned into a first class Veterans Memorial project due to the efforts of the
Wanamingo Veterans Honor Guard and the Albert O. Quamme VFW Post 186.

On September 21, 2013, a 2,500 pound engraved and polished black granite
pedestal with new flag pole were in place and the American flag and POW/MIA
flag were raised over the newly completed memorial for the first time. In addition,
a sign for the Memorial was placed at the entrance to Veterans Memorial Athletic
Field.

Sponsored pavers are in place around the Memorial and donations for the 159
pavers sold have completely paid for the Memorials permanent components.
Plans allow for 288 pavers to be placed, leaving 129 pavers to be sponsored by
friends and families of future veterans.

“Sam”, as the 5’ granite doughboy is affectionately known by staff and patients,
has been a fixture here since moved from it’s original and still standing base at
1183 E. Main St. in Norman. This was the original location of the Veteran’s Center.
The doughboy and it’s original base have no inscription, dedication or Honor Roll
plaque. “Sam” is displayed at the center with a granite plaque dedicated to The
National Sojourners. Sam’s history is not known by Center staff, but research is
being done to correct it’s missing provenance.

Minneapolis Memorial Parkway,
Victory Memorial Drive and
Victory Memorial Drive Plaza

This is the grandest and largest World War 1 Memorial I have seen in my travels.  A walk and drive here is a must if you visit Minneapolis.

Both, the Memorial Parkway and Victory Memorial Drive, are a section of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The parkway runs along the northwestern and northern boundaries of the Camden community. The Victory neighborhood in Camden derives its name from this parkway. Trees and individual memorial markers located throughout the green belts on either side of the Drive and Parkway were established to honor the memory of the 568 servicemen of Hennepin County, who died in combat and from wounds, disease or accident in the World War. A flag pole plaza, flanked by flowering trees, greets visitors passing along the northwestern curve of the parkway.  On the Plaza there are many bronze plaques that tell the story of this project and list the names of the Hennepin County soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen who made the Supreme Sacrifice in defense of freedom.  A concrete strip on the plaza behind the flag pole perfectly lines up with the flag pole’s shadow at 11AM on November 11th and is inscribed “ARMISTICE DAY 1918”.  The Plaza received a major facelift in about 1976. 

Charles M. Loring, the influential Minneapolis parks commissioner who put up the funds for the Elm trees that lined the parkway, insisted on Elms – in what is now a bitter irony, Loring wrote that given time and space, “they will in time become giants of strength and beauty.” In actuality, many of the Elms succumbed to disease and were replaced with Hackberry trees.   A wide central boulevard provides a recreational park that sees much activity during the warm seasons.  The GAR Memorial, Grand Army of the Republic (Union Army Civil War Veterans Assn.) and Lincoln statue across from the Plaza are a visitors bonus.

The story behind this Memorial Monument can not be told in a few sentences here.
Please read the PDF linked below. After reading it I am sure you will see as I did,
that his story could have been written about any of the thousands of small towns
and neighborhoods in America that have sent their young sons and daughters off
to war in defense of our great nation and our G-d given rights and freedoms.
https://www.edinamn.gov/DocumentCenter/View/3934

The 34 names on this Memorial Monument are those of native and adopted
sons of Edina (and Morningside during the period of separation) who died
while serving in a time of war over the years since Edina was incorporated
in 1888. The first death occurred during the First World War, when Roy
and Elizabeth Sherman’s 18-year-old son Elmer was killed while fighting in
a heavily fortified sector of France’s Argonne Forest. Elmer Sherman was
the only Edina resident who perished in that conflict.

This historic bronze plaque formerly hung in the City Council Chambers
at the City Hall which was built in the 1960’s. Ih had been moved there
from the original Richfield Town Hall. When the new City Hall was built,
the plaque was moved to this location.
The plaque is not in the actual “Honoring All Veterans Memorial”, but the
stone it is mounted to can be seen in the lower left corner, next to the flag
poles, in the full Memorial photograph in the Photo Gallery. It is next to a
very interesting American Civil War Memorial & Monument.
