Our Veterans

We Thank You for your service. It is with humble gratitude that we offer this page for the recognition of the many men and women, sons and daughters and family and friends who have served our country from Mt. Vernon and the surrounding area.

We hope this page to be a reflection of those who have contributed so much to our country, our freedom and our way of life. Any tributes, biography, personal interest, pictures and rememberances are welcomed. Help us build this into a lasting memorial lest we forget the lessons of their service.
