Honor Roll Project: Korean War Monument – Leominster, Massachusetts

I am excited to participate for the second time 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. This is the link to the Honor Roll Project:
