The Cherry County Veterans’ Memorial Committee is planning a memorial to honor Veterans serving from the conclusion of WWII to the conclusion of Vietnam. Dates of service included in the Korean and Vietnam Era Memorial are January 1, 1947 to May 7, 1975. We are trying to ensure appropriate inclusion of all Veterans serving during these Eras, regardless whether they were ever deployed to foreign soil. The willing service to our country is to be commended.
