Private Sam Yurkovich’s memorial, chosen by his family when his
remains were returned home is one of many of this statue that seems
to have been purchased from a regional artist. There are several
more in the area and others have been destroyed in the past 100
years. Another example is pictured in the photo gallery. This is the
best example and the most well maintained of this type of individual
soldiers memorial I have seen

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.

This memorial was designed by J. Andre Smith, a World War I veteran, artist, architect and constructed by stone cutter William Keast. It was installed in 1923 and moved slightly to this spot when the new town hall was built in 1966. Plastered in the Stony Creek granite reads “Pro Patria 1917-1918” just below a Distinguished Service Cross. President Woodrow Wilson commissioned Smith, the admired World War I artist, to create the monument, according to the plaque that sits to its left. It was dedicated to those World War 1 servicemen who gave their lives for their country and are buried in a foreign land.

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.

Monument elements: Concrete base, Milford pink granite shaft and bronze relief panels.

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.
Replica bronze plaques on a large boulder. These plaques replaced the originals, which were lost sometime in the 1970s.
The war tribute is located on the grounds of the Lovett Memorial Library, a neighborhood branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia. The memorial was originally dedicated May 25, 1924.
The names of 34 men and one woman from Mount Airy who lost their lives during the First World War are listed on the larger plaque (20” X 30”), with the smaller plaque stating that the boulder is from Valley Forge.
The replacement bronzes wer made by Franklin Bronze Plaques, Franklin, PA. The plastic replicas were made by a sign company in Ardmore, PA. Both sets of plaques were paid for by the Friends of the Lovett Memorial Library. Planned during 2016., the re-dedication of the plaques had to await completion of a $31 million renovation and expansion of the Lovett library branch.
For safekeeping, the new bronzes are mounted inside the library in the Community Room, with excellent plastic replicas mounted on the boulder outside the library on Germantown Avenue.
Research by Professor Kenneth Finkel of Temple University uncovered a photograph of the boulder, with original plaques, in the Philadelphia City Archives. This was the key discovery which made possible the creation of the replacement plaques. Until then, the plaques could not be replaced as the inscription text was not known.
Stone memorial with bronze World War One plaques surmounted by a Doughboy statue and flanked by memorials for World War Two and the Korean War. Nearby is an inter-war 75 mm gun.

Greater love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.
How sleep the brave who sink to rest by all their country's wishes blest. By fairy hands their knell is rung by unseen forms their dirge is sung.
All time will be the millennium of their glory.

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 I of the U.S.A.
