Illinois III

On the corner of W. Cooke and Washington Streets in Mt. Pulaski, Ill. is the local Courthouse. among the several memorials there is this one to the two men from the area that were lost in Vietnam. Embraced by the American and POW/MIA flags Sgt. Raymond Gee and Pfc. Michael Scoggin are honored for their service and sacrifice.

As I have said so many times before it always warms my heart to see a town or county create an everlasting tribute to one or two or three fallen sons or daughters. It takes a lot of work and commitment to see these memorials through to completion and I salute the communities that have such diligence and respect.
