American Legion Post 508 of Illiopois, Sangamon County, IL will have a
dedication of the new Veterans Memorial on May 30, 2005 at Wabash Park in
uptown Illiopolis at 11:00 a.m. This memorial is dedicated to the memory
and to honor all who served out country to defend and preserve our freedom
from the Illiopolis area. Over 225 memorial bricks with veterans names
will be displayed along with sketches in marble of those 5 soldiers who
died during WW II. There is at least one Rev. War soldier, several Civil
War soldiers honored with bricks, as well as other wars and those who
served up to 2005. If you are searching for a soldier from this area, this
is the place to look for them.
