We shall not sleep.
This city park was established in 1919 in memory of Caney's Company D who participated in World War I. Gen. George H. Wark organized Co. D, 3rd Kansas Infantry and mustered the first units of the Kansas Army National Guard into federal service at Caney's Elk's Hall, May 19, 1917, and led the troops to Europe. He retired in 1943 as a brigadier general.
This monument, erected in December 1918, is dedicated to the men who trained at Camp Funston during World War I. Between the fall of 1917 and November 1918, approximately 50,000 soldiers received their basic training at this camp. These soldiers formed the 10th, 89th, and part of the 92nd Division. General Leonard Wood, commander of this camp, ordered the construction of this stone monument as a remembrance and tribute to their service and sacrifice.
The faded plaque is on an archway in Blaney Plaza. The archway is by the entrance to the downtown area of Saratoga.

February 23, 1919, the monument was first unveiled at Central Park (now Centennial Park), honoring 11 men from Seminole County who died in service to their country in WWI. It is made of marble and in the form of a broken shaft symbolizing the youthful lives sacrificed in the prime of manhood for the "Cause of the right and the just." F.L. Miller of Milvis Marble Co. presented the monument to Seminole County.
February 24, 1985, the monument was moved to the American Legion Post 53 at 3506 Orlando Drive.
June 1988, the monument was moved to the American Legion's new home at 2874 S. Sanford Ave in Sanford.
November 11, 2006, the monument was moved to a place of honor here at the Veterans Memorial Park.

The memorial is a large stone monument with a bronze plaque. The plaque is inscribed with a long list of names of all soldiers and sailors from Kennebunk who participated in World War I. At the bottom of the list is the following inscription:
Her Soldiers and Sailors
Of The World War 1914-1918
This bronze plaque is mounted on a granite stone at the site of the Old York Gaol, a National Historic Landmark. It simply lists the names of WWI veterans from York.
Ground for the monument was broken on November 15th, 1926 on what was called then "Hay Scales Lot". Over 200 school children and many citizens of the town participated, accorded to Dr. Fellows' "History of Lincoln". Evidently it didn't take long to construct the monument, because that next spring, May 29th to be exact, the town held a Memorial Day service and dedication at the monument that afternoon. Maine's Governor Ralph Brewster was on hand to give the dedication speech. The Hon. William T. Gardiner presented the monument to the town, and it was unveiled by Lincoln area Civil War veterans. The 5th Infantry Band played music, there were prayers and speeches, and a benediction was given by a Rev. Mullin. How many people attended the ceremony is not recorded, but we can assume many if not most area citizens attended, as was the custom back then for these types of things.
And since another world-wide conflict was not anticipated, it was simply called the World War Memorial. Today, it is more commonly called the "doughboy" statue after the nickname given to American soldiers in World War 1. It now faces out West Broadway instead of toward Main Street.
