A new Doughboy Wall of Honor will be displayed along with the World War I Wall of Honor.
The WWI Wall of Honor shows photos of WWI veterans that were sent to the Friends of Fort Caswell Rifle Range. This has been on display during the Derby and other special occasions for several years.
Photos have continued to be received and added to the Wall – – both the physical one and the page online. See the online version for the very special photos shared by family members.
On the other side of the Wall is the new Doughboy Wall (seen here in progress). This Wall honors the Brunswick County WWI Veterans. Framed and typed cards show many of the veterans that readers have become familiar with by reading the WWI Profiles on the blog.
These profiles have been posted on the website each Monday. Check tomorrow for the new profile which for the first time, includes a photo submitted by a Brunswick County resident!
To view the WWI Profiles already published, click on the veteran’s name on the WWI Brunswick County Veteran list, which is also accessible by the blue button on the top right of the webpage.
