A debt of gratitude is owed to 198 soldiers whose names are etched in bronze on the war memorial at Lancaster's Memorial Park, said Ernest Stroud.
Stroud, a Korean Conflict veteran and publicty chairman for DAV Chapter ???, said Lancaster's war dead gave their all to protect a way of life that we now enjoy.
And its been that way since April 6, 1917 when the United States entered World War I. Stroud said since in the last 93 years, more than 620,000 of America's sons and daughters have made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.
