Vermont III

Driving the beautiful back roads of Vermont, one happens across many small towns. It is unusual to not find some kind of remembrance to local sons and daughters who served or were lost in our nation's wars.

This one in South Royalton lists the names of those who served in various wars. There is no explanation of the symbols, but one assumes that the star next to a name indicates they were lost. Thankfully, none of the 79 men and women listed here have the star that many of their brothers and sisters from other conflicts bear next to their names.
