Honor Roll Project

I am excited to participate in the Honor Roll Project spearheaded by Heather Wilkinson Rojo who writes the blog Nutfield Genealogy on Blogspot. The idea is to photograph local veterans memorials/monuments and transcribe them so that they are searchable on the web. Here is my offering for this Veterans Day November 11, 2014:

There are four monuments in Memorial Circle in Leominster, Massachusetts with the names of the fallen inscribed on them.

Here is the monument dedicated to those from Leominster who lost their lives during World War Two:

World War II Monument

Quite honestly, I was shocked at how many soldiers died in World War II  just from one small city.

Here is the transcription of that monument:
