Nebraska IX

Nebraska City is the County Seat of Otoe County and their war memorial sits upon the grounds of the Court House.

The memorial is what is sometimes called a multi war memorial as it commemorates those lost from more than one war, in this case WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

10 from the county are honored here along with a number of others from the other wars.

All I could find out about the area is that the county is named for the Otoe Indian Tribe and has a total population, as of 2010, of a little more than 15,000.

I always wonder how these 10 (or 20,or 30, or 7 as the case may be) ended up being the ones who were lost and how their families deals with the, surely never-ending, grief. I often wish there was more information available as this seems so little to say about someones loved one.

Next time, on September 3rd, we will venture, once more, to Nevada to see an, as yet, unbuilt memorial, so join me there, as usual, at 9:00am
